Goldeneye at Withens Clough

On Saturday 20th April on Withens Clough reservoir there was a pair of Goldeneye ducks.  It was a beautiful, sunny day and the white of the male showed up brilliantly against the blue water.  I watched them for half an hour: continually diving, briefly appearing on the surface and then diving again.  It was a great sight.

Great, Shan. I wish I had seen them. Wonder if they're still there. . .
