havnt seen this little guy at the duck pond before i noticed he has a blue ring on his leg, does anyone no what breed he is? and would the ring suggest he belongs to someone? thanksx
Not sure on the breed bit the coloured ring will denote that he is from a collection.
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
i thought so , i guess hes decided to go for a little summer holiday by the pond. :)
Looks quite stocky. What about a grey and white Muscovy duck.
It looks to have at least some Muscovy in it, I would be inclined to suggest a Muscovy x domestic Mallard cross though (sometimes known as a 'Mule Duck').
I see what you mean RoyW, the beak isn't quite right for a true Muscovy. Nice looking bird though.
he is lovely hes still there with all the mallards enjoying the sun. :)
Fantastic yellow feet don't you think?
yes lovely yellow feet.
Looks like a domestic confit-type duck cross, possibly with some mallard, though the head and beak look more Muscovy than Gressingham.
