Winter Ducks at Castle Water

Today at the hide at Castle Water it was calm and grey making the sounds of the birds very clear. This recording starts with a loud Coot that was so close you can hear it diving. A background of Teal calling and the louder whistling of Wigeon. In the background the Cormorants are starting to display on their treetop nests with a deep gutteral call. Then the Wigeon get very excited as they try to impress a spare female.
