Tufted x Ferruginous Duck hybrids – Felbrigg lake
It’s back – or rather, they are! I was walking past Felbrigg lake this afternoon, on my way to Sustead Common, when two Aytha type ducks flew in. I assumed at first that it would be the pair of Tufted Duck that were on the lake briefly the other day. Then I took a closer look and it now appears that we have two Tufted x Ferruginous type ducks visiting the lake.

As always, if anyone has an alternative opinion, I’d be pleased to hear it.
