Fudgy duck (Dinton, 02/10/11)

When the news came through that this bird was good for Ferruginous Duck I headed over.  It was feeding on the west side of Sandford Lake loosely associating with Tufted Ducks and Coots.  Obviously a male with its pale eye but lacked the rich mahogany colouring of a full adult so must be a bird of the year.

Nothing interesting from Lee Farm, just a Barn Owl at Lavell's and two Red Kites which flew over as I was leaving.
