Wigeon - Bakewell

Came across this eclipse drake Wigeon at Bakewell this morning. Although the weather has been fantastic over the weekend there has been a persistent mist on the hills until late morning so I ventured up to Bakewell. I don't know if this bird has been present for some time or not, at this time of year there is a large influx of Wigeon from the continent so it could have been a relatively recent arrival. If it stays a few more weeks it should get back in to the full male plumage.
