A nice sunny day and a couple of spare hours so off to Amwell to photograph the newly arrived Goldeneye. There have only been two males so far and as is often the case they were at the southern end of the pit to the left of the Gladwin Hide. They were diving constantly, only spending a few seconds on the surface and the first shot I took was fairly typical of the view you got.
However with a little patience I was able to get some better shots as they moved closer to the hide and spent some time washing, preening and wing-flapping. You just can't beat a drake Goldeneye.
