Wow John...it looks like you captured every color known to man in this amazing shot! I can't imagine a more beautiful waterfowl species than a mandarin duck.

Thanks Mike, I produced a swatch for giggles and it's not far off every colour. :) They are certainly an attractive and eye catching feast for the eyes.

What an excellent shot, Mark! Sharpness and detail are spot on. This starling definitely appears to be telling someone off.;-)a

Many thanks Mike
Hard to distinguish sometime but give away are black beak, legs or very dark legs for boys with girls having light such and the lores of the females are a gingery rich brown

This boy taken end of February has lost most of his colours

As I've mentioned before Richard, your shots of these guys and everything else are always remarkably sharp with outstanding detail. This image proves my point.
I remember a while back, you posting and telling us all the difference between the males and females when both sexes look similar. My problem is that I forgot.:cry:

Lovely shot of the Great Crested Flycatcher, Steve! You surely got this guy in sharp focus.

Very appealing shot, Rob! Wonderful composition.

Many thanks again Mike for your kind comments. They are very much appreciated.
Your problem sounds like mine. I'd forgotten I'd mentioned before so guess that makes us 1 all :-P

Mike that's a lovely photo and a bit different to some. Only RR's I ever see are on here and always enjoy them

Very nicely composed photo of the little plover.

Really stands out against the surrounds as it strides across the sand.
