Shoveler waiting for the ice to melt

Addendum - Bob Pomfret writes on OxonBirds
"Got up early and had half an hour on the meadow before work this morning. All
the ice has gone and there were good numbers of duck on the flood: c300 Widgeon,
c250 Teal, 3 Pintail, 20 Shoveler and a Shelduck. Not so many waders, only about
20 each of Lapwing and Golden Plover.They were a long way off and I only had
binoculars, so there may well have been others with them. Also displaying Great
Crested Grebe on the stream by Fiddlers Island and a Kingfisher to make it all
very worth while."
