Waters` Edge country park. Gadwall November 2016


I took this photo of a Gadwall at the Waters` edge country park at Barton Upon Humber. There was a number of them on the west pond. Lighting conditions were low, but the soft light made shadows less harsh. I used a Canon EOS1100D with a Tamron 70-300mm lens, f8 400ISO

Gadwalls are a little smaller than the more common Mallards and are very shy. So approach with caution as they are easily spooked. At first glance they seem quite plain, but do have some nice colours and plumage when you get closer. This year there are more numbers than normal. So go along to the Waters` edge country park to see if you can see one
