Beautiful bird! We used to see one here in California at the Colusa Wildlife Refuge. Not for the last year or so, though.

Another gorgeous duck. I mostly see only Mallards around here. Charming in their own way, but I envy the variety you seem to have around you.

@Cherrill Thank you Cherill, it is native to Eastern Europe, but I haven't been away on holiday. I found this at the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT), Martin Mere Reserve near to Southport.

@gardencat Thank you Joanne, we do have a variety of ducks around here, but some of them I do have to go and find.
This one is not one of our native species, it is at a Wildfowl Reserve a few miles from here. You would have to go to Eastern Asia to find it in the breeding season, and maybe northern India or China out of breeding season.

Thank you Mark. I think perhaps that's just a little too far for us to see it! A great sighting tho.

@markp Thanks for the background info. I don't see India or China in my immediate future ( or the preserve in England either) so I'm glad I got to enjoy this duck through your shot, at least.
