WWT London: Gilten Goose?
More precious in large.
Extras: Eiders on pretty water, Shady crane, Shadowy red shovelers, Hooded merganser (f), and Nēnē with emperors beyond
Last day of my WWT membership; I think I went 43 times (inc. to WWT Arundel twice), so it's been a pretty good year. I thought that I'd be blipping the eiders looking handsome on pretty water (the males are moulting into their breeding plumage), but it hasn't been an emperor for a while, and they're just unbelievably adorable with their persistent nibbling, bleating, and optimistic demeanour... I thought that their silvery plumage was looking particularly fine in the golden light, but struggled to catch it with the little camera.
Today's others are here (or right from White-fronted and red-breasted geese on mound)
