Australian Wood Duck

Report. Jon Rance. 1st July 2010

"Found an unusual duck with the Mallards on the pool today, I knew it was some kind of New World escape/exotic and having consulted my Helm wildfowl guide, I've discovered its a male Maned Duck/ Australian Wood Duck ( Chenonetta jubata)

Don't suppose it'd make it past a rarity panel but it's an interesting one for a photo and category E of the patch list! Apart from which, nothing much to report."

Thanks for the report John.

Well done in finding and identifying the Australian Wood Duck
