First of all, thank you to everyone who left comments while I was away.
I'll do my best to catch up with everyone as soon as I can.
One of my favorite places in Wales is RSPB Conwy, and this where the following were taken.
Red-breasted Mergansers are usually found around our coasts, but occasionally venture inland. Similar in appearance to their cousins, Goosanders; but they have a scruffier look to them, and an amazing 'punk' hairstyle.
Whilst I was at Conwy, a group of males were doing some serious showing off to the females.
The courtship involved lots of scooting across the water, and throwing their heads back.
Here's a selection of pictures, and a short video at the end.
Enjoy the rest of your day
