More Pintail Pics

The Pintail is still Wintering here, with ample opportunity to get some more pics too. Reading the RSPB book on the Pintail it seems a pretty rare breeder in the UK and Ireland, with fewer than 50 breeding pairs ! It would be nice if this one had a mate locally and bred here. It's the first one I have ever seen and find it beautifully marked. It's probably a visitor from Iceland, Scandinavia or the Baltic states though.
