Beautiful photos Jan. :clap: :clap:

I caught a glimpse of your Woody a few pages back and I am so looking forward to hearing news of their arrival back in SA later this year. Hope the birds are in greater numbers than last year.

Love the White Faced Ducks.....we have about 14 that have started visiting the dam in front of our house each morning and evening, before flying off to their feeding spots. They dont stay too long because we have 2 Egyptian Geese who have decided that the entire dam belongs to them! :roll: :roll: Typical :lol:
