Marbled Duck

Monday 9th April 2007
I went down to Frampton this evening to see the drake Marbled Duck on the flashes on Saul Warth. It was right at the back of the northernmost flash with Gadwall and Teal. Who knows whether it is a true vagrant, it is reported as being very wary of people, has both wings complete and is not ringed. Also there, a Little Ringed Plover and three Redshanks. More information on the Marbled Duck (or Marbled Teal) can be found here: Marbled Teal - BirdLife Species Factsheet
