During my visit to Slimbridge I had decided on the way that I would try to avoid spending to much time with the collections of exotic wildfowl they have within the grounds. I thought I did a pretty good job but on the odd occasion certain species couldn't be avoided. The highlight of which had to be the drake Hooded Merganser a rather stunning specimen.
