Netta rufina

A twitchable Red-crested Pochard in Cheshire! No where near Gilroy or the Newton duck brothel so possibly has credentials as a genuine bird thats moved to the N West to avoid bad weather elsewhere. A scenario made more likely by the presence of one on Southport Marine lake.

Many thanks to Big Al for picking me up from home due to my current incapacitated state!

Where in Cheshire was the Red crested pochard then?

Frodsham No. 6 tank.
The Leasowe Med Gull is unlikely to be the Moore one. Mervyn has been at Leasowe for a couple of years.
