One of my own photos today - this is the Hooded Merganser that used to hang around at RSPB Radipole Lake in Weymouth - I think he was an escapee from a collection. Don't think he's still around though...

When I showed my dad the photo above, he nicknamed it the Mekon Duck, after the uber-villain from the Dan Dare comics - due to the Merganser's apparently massive head (actually created by the male's feathered crest, rather than his huge Mekon-sized brain!).
