A hybrid Tufted Duck x Ring-necked Duck at Seaforth NR, Lancashire, in March-April 2009




This is a drake Ring-necked Duck x Tufted Duck hybrid which was present at Seaforth NR, Lancashire, in March-April 2009 (Pete Kinsella).
From these two images it would be hard to believe that this were not a pure drake Ring-necked Duck but other images reveal it to be an obvious hybrid.
