This Drake clearly had no idea I was there as it flew just yards in front of me as I was watching the Heronry at Middleton.
Gadwall's are lovely birds, they have lots of detail in the plumage which often gets overlooked, from a distant they look quite bland but close up you can see all the grey and brown intricate markings in the plumage especially the male.
I took this shot as I was stalking the movements of a Marsh Harrier, they flew right in front of me making the usual noises which alerted me to them.
