Ring-necked Duck at Par today

I went to Par beach pool today and stumbled across this drake Ring-necked Duck. It's the first time I've seen this species here. Whether or not this individual is the same bird from St Gothians, I'm not sure? It remained quite close to the island at the back of the pool, so was always distant.  The images below are 50% crops taken with an 840mm lens.


  1. A week or so ago this bird was at the private pool near Stithians as well, so this may well be the same bird moving on.

  2. Thanks for the comment Mark. I'm guessing also this is the same bird from St Gothians as well. I think RND's tend to move around quite a bit.
