  4. There's a problem with Shelducks Bob. They are so common that many birders (unlike you and I) don't bother to look at or photograph them. What a shame.

  5. Hi Bob,
    Wonderful set of images of the Shelduck, I must admit I enjoy getting images myself, but they are a difficult duck to get a decent image from. Having both black and white, what do you compensate for.??????
    All the best, John

  6. I think that a name change is due here, Bob. These birds deserve to be called Handsome Shelduck and not Common Shelduck. Super images! With my best wishes - - Richard

  13. I had a favorite marble that I'm pretty sure was modeled after this beauty. Kids should still collect marbles.
