The Goosander is a bird that I have never really got to grips with, only really getting record shots, but managed to put that right last weekend, I was off at football, Sharon had a walk around Llyn Padarn whilst she waited, and came back all excited telling me there were Goosanders on the Lake, We hot footed it back before we travelled home, and spent a great half hour photographing Goosanders in the late afternoon Snowdonia sunshine.

  2. Gary....You put to rights here 'never having got to grips with the Goosander before' as you certainly have now. The light turning the head plumage of the drake to green is a first for me, and the head shot of the female shows the sawbill off to good effect....amazing.

    Apologies for the delete above.

  3. Wonderful set of images Gary,I`ve always found these birds to be very shy but you`ve managed to get cracking close ups well done.

  4. Fantastic shots of the Goosander especially DSC3415-2.
