    Maybe you better tell us? Sure is a pretty one...
    It is a Pochard Bill. They aren't resident over here ,but they do come in, at certain times of the year,and if you know where..Good flighting duck,and you have to 'Pick your bird', because they come in a bunch!

    Cool bird... Here is the only Pochard I ever heard of before...The Rosy Billed Pochard from South America.



    Also read somewhere that the Redhead is a member of the Pochard family...

    Every day is a learning day Bill!..After shooting duck for over 35 years ! I Actually believed there was only (1) type of Pochard !! As we sit in our own corner of the world we often think the world should think like we do!?....Maybe rather than 'Favourite Duck', we should be asking 'WHAT Is THE DUCK' that we know? Or have I missed out the (F)
    ...
    As far as eating is concerned.
    The Teal, is Tasty,and The Mallard is Mild,Never Tasted or shot Eider' ,Never wanted to!..As I believe any bird that eats from the sea,is usually a bit 'fishy'!
