Three Visitors Lake LLandod.

057Met Shirley up the lake and she asked me had I seen the strange ducks near the beach area ….Well I hadn’t.. but here they are… on first sighting one would assume they were young fem mallard but the size (Teal size) bills different and very tame. Steve H put some feed down and they got out of the water and  wolfed it down…..Probably some Hybrid escapees from a nearby pond….any body throw some light ?????? Well done Shirley for spotting them.

    look like call duck types to me

  2. Syd Chalkly says:

    I agree with Sally that they are call ducks, usually kept as pets or show birds, these particular birds I think maybe known as khaki

    I’m glad you had a sighting Anthea….we were up earlyish this A.M no sign..but Joy and Carole T found them this afternoon….this limping must have happened recently they were fine when we pictured them late yesterday afternoon.
