Distant female Goosander...........

The Drake Goosander is a handsome looking bird but the female is equally impressive with its chestnut crested head and silvery flanks.

We have a number of these sawbills on the reserve at the moment both Ducks and Drakes, they get a bad press from fishermen and I have heard that they could have an impact on the Kingfisher population by depleating fish stocks, particularly small fish on which they depend.
