Display

It was nice to see the Red-breasted Mergansers going through a bit of display. The males look splendid showing off the white parts of the plumage to the female...
...but she doesn't look that impressed!
All of this display was played out sideways on to the female and face on to another male. Stretching the neck up...
...then plunging down into the water while calling and showing those white feathers to the female...
...before bobbing back to the surface.
The Stonechat was doing his best to distract me so it would be rude to ignore him!
