Ruddy Ducks


Ruddy Ducks seem to be pretty topical at the moment. Been some interesting debate around about the effectiveness of the attempt to eradicate the species from the UK and the wider EU.
Reminds me of this bird which appeared at Beddington in 2005. I think we decided it was some interesting variant rather than a Maccoa Duck. Maybe a hybrid (with a White-headed Duck???- God forbid).
