This sequence of a male Tufted Duck was taken during my recent stroll around Pen Pond in Richmond Park. Most of the time this male Tuftie just drifted around hoping to pick a tit-bit from the surface ... BUT then ....
.... without any warning he raced across the water. Why, I'm not really sure but after coming to a stop he then decided it was time to show off his ballet skills.
An elegant display of fitness in full breeding plumage so I guess this guy is just showing off to any of the females that might be watching. FAB.
