27th July 2019 – Eastville Park, Bristol

Goosanders are not common in my local park but this last winter we saw a good number of them. Strangely today another one (a female) reappeared on the River Frome, the river which runs through the park. It behaved in a somewhat strange manner (a bit like you sometimes see from caged animals) and sort of paced up and down (swam in reality) in a short space on the river; it really looked very confused.

It was a strange afternoon as it was quite warm but very cloudy and quite gloomy in the park. But there are always beautiful things to see as, I hope, can be seen from the few photos I took.
