Beardies & Goldeneye

Spent the last hour or so of daylight at Titchwell Marsh. Crowd gathered by the side of the West Bank path overlooking a patch of reeds alerted me to the presence of a feeding party of Bearded Tits and although the light was fading fast I was still able to get a few shots in the cold calm of late afternoon. This male bird is a cropped image.
A bit further along on the Brackish Marsh a pair of Goldeneye were courting the male throwing his head back so that it touched the middle of his back. All the time staying in close attendance on the female and keeping an eye on another male Goldeneye which looked keen to court the female as well.
