Strange looking beasts, aren't they!  They have been at Blunham Lake for a couple of years now but can often be hard to pick out of the Wigeon flock.  I think they could be hybrid Wigeon x Gadwall.  Any other opinions on their identification welcome.


  1. Have you asked Arnold Z? Think you might be right, Steve, but ...

  2. The interesting thing is that at least one of these birds is already ringed, Errol. I have let Arnold know about them but were unknown to him. I wonder if they have been mis-id'd in the hand?
