The wigeon is a medium-sized duck with a round head and small bill. The head and neck of the male are chestnut, with a yellow forehead, pink breast and grey body. In flight birds show white bellies and males have a large white wing patch. Birds breed in central and northern Scotland and also in northern England. Many birds visit Holland in winter from Iceland, Scandinavia and Russia.

Hi Ton, you take beautifu pictures and this one is not different from the others in that regard. What a nice pose from the duck, I love its graceful movement. The light is superb and perfectly exposed, it is such a nice view to look at. I like the sharpness of the water even in the back, it makes us feel the movement. Well seen and thank you,
