Yesterday afternoon I noted a pair of distant odd looking Ruddy Shelducks but hoped for a better view early this morning. Alas no sign of them but 6 tired looking Greylag Geese hunkering down out of the wind in one of the nearby channels. Since early morning it has blowing a hooley with heavy rain...not birding weather!
On reflection I beieve these RuddyShelduck may have been escaped hybrids...anybody any ideas? Regrettably too far away to photograph.
