Nēnē, Black-bellied Whistling Ducks and Long-tailed Tits

Long-tailed tit, Aegithalos caudatus
A trip to Arundel WWT this afternoon gave me Long-tailed Tits, Nēnē  (Hawaiian Geese - pronounced naynay) and Black-bellied Whistling Ducks. The Nēnē is one of the wildfowl species that Wildlife and Wetland Trust has helped save from extinction.
