Spruced up for Spring

The bright sunny weather continues, and allows the chance of a few good shots. 

The River birds are beginning to look their best, spruced up for Spring and the mating season. Their colours become intense, all to attract and impress their partners.

Sari and her sister have both got mates and Jo was sticking close to them today.

The female Goldeneye gave me a lucky chance shot, a split second before diving you can see the membrane sheath half covering the eye !
