I went to Carnsew basin today, to capture an image of what is probably the most photographed duck in Cornwall, a Long Tailed Duck. It was a treat to see this species relatively close, as normally they are viewed through a scope half a mile away. Exposure was difficult as it was so easy to burn out the pure white areas of this lovely male. Unfortunately it kept its long tail to itself.
