Ring-necked Duck, London WWT, May 2015

There doesn't seem to be a lot of activity in this area of the forum and technically speaking this isn't a rarity but a scarcity (according to BirdGuides) but I was pretty pleased with decent sightings of this one & thought I'd share a couple of shots of the male Ring-necked Duck from London WWT over the bank holiday weekend

Hi
It was a nice bird to see, especially as I missed the other record from there in 2002.
