Wigeon are very common winter visitors to Ireland. They come from Iceland, Scandinavia and Siberia to feed here in our milder and generally ice-free climate. They are found throughout the country from tidal mud-flats, where I saw this pair, to freshwater lakes and marshland. In this case, the drake had just spotted me and begun to move away. That ‘gesture’ is what I hope gives the picture its life.
