Red-crested Pochard - New Site Record !

The local patch warden discovered an eclipse male Red-crested Pochard this afternoon - a new site record. This duck seems to be on the increase recently, so it was always on the cards that one would turn up.
The strong afternoon sun was directly behind the bird, but after carefully moving to a better position, these images were obtained.
