Another Eclipse ?

by PeterKR

Another strangely coloured duck seen last week at a local Nature Reserve.

It has the body shape of a Mallard but there are many different breeds of ducks on this lake so it might be the result of a bit of 'hows yer father' !
The legs, in particular, puzzle me ?

Yup, certainly... male this time... unless, as I said before....it is still there at the end of the Spring....
altho' thinking on.... given your statement about the number of breeds.... are there any white Alesbury-type ducks around?
If so, then a bit of "knicker twitching" might well have taken place....
the Alesbury was bred from Mallard x summat else.
Never be afraid to talk about your techniques...
