Drake Ring-necked Duck shows his ring

Its not often that you see a Ring-necked Duck's ring...but yesterday this adult male in full summer plumage at Penhalvern was displaying to a female Tufted Duck and showed us everything it had!  This is most likely the same drake that was displaying to Tufted Ducks at Stithians Reservoir last year.  There are currently two wintering males in the county with another also seen yesterday at Par.
