Goosander female, Bylet, Bridgnorth

Two female goosanders, seen at Bridgnorth’s bylet on the same day as the female with her ducklings. One spent most of her time in the Severn in the lee of the shingle bank (the first couple of photos are looking down at her from the heights of Castle Walk), later coming ashore to continue preening.
