Gadwall, Figgate Park

Pleased to see the Gadwalls still at Figgate Park on Sunday. The 3 males have now been joined by a female - its white speculum giving the game away as it fed. The two males below were keeping a close eye on it and each other. The other male seemed more interested in the possibility of bread! So, 4 Gadwalls in total - probably the most that I have seen in Lothian for a few years and not a species of wildfowl I would normally associate with an urban park pond.
