Hooded Merganser

Unfortunately my posts for a short while Will be from my archive whilst my camera is undergoing repairs. The following shots are of a Hooded Merganser I photographed at Slimbridge a few months ago.
The Hooded Merganser is part of the captive stock and not wild. They are a North American species and are short journey migrants. It is thought that the majority of sitings in Northern Europe are escapees from privately owned stock.
