Garganey display

Garganey remains at Pit 60. I filmed it displaying on 17th Jan. Apparently to a female wigeon. It  threw its head back x3, so that the head touched its back briefly like a male Goldeneye. This display is described in the BWP account of Garganey and depicted in a drawing of a breeding plumage male doing this display labelled "A" on page 534.
