The Goosander’s back

Joining the usual denizens of the Alexandra Park lake [Mute Swan, Canada Goose, Mallard, Tufted Duck, Moorhen, Coot, Black-headed Gull, Grey Wagtail] is a male Goosander. They are large diving ducks, very streamlined and smart. Last winter we had 2 immatures (with brown heads) but before they left, the head of one of them darkened, showing it to be a male, and the other female. Well, either that male has come back, or another one’s arrived.
