44. Common Goldeneye (Bucephala clangula)

Another duck which for the most part visits the UK in winter, but does breed in a few spots here. We always know winter has well and truly arrived when the Goldeneyes appear at RSPB Sandwell Valley, needless to say suburban Birmingham is not one of the places they choose to hang around in once spring arrives!
