Ruddy Duck (1 Viewer)


From https://rm.coe.int/expert-meeting-report-on-the-ruddy-duck-25-feb-2020/16809e17d3
"United Kingdom
Culling resulted in the removal of 26 Ruddy Ducks in 2018 and a further three birds (two adult females and a presumed adult female) were shot in 2019. There was no evidence of breeding anywhere in the UK in 2019 for the first time in over 50 years. From peak numbers at the turn of the century of around 6,000 birds, the latest data suggests that there may be as few as 10-15 birds remaining."
