We also visited the wildfowl gardens where there are exotic species from around the
world and ducks that can be seen locally usually in winter. One of these the Goldeneye
we will hopefully see shortly as it appears locally, as we went through the visitor center
into the gardens we were greeted by the male Eider duck. Its chest filled with air and it
then made its distinctive wooing call which was great to see up close from this sea duck.
