Black-backed Radjah Shelduck and a Goldfinch

Goldfinch, Carduelis carduelis
A visit to Arundel this morning yielded a Black-backed Radjah Shelduck from New Guinea/North Australia and a Goldfinch by the Reed Bed rife at the WWT reserve. Ratty put in an appearance by Mill Road.
I can never resist taking the reflection under the Mill Road bridge - it looks different every time as the water levels and wind changes
