The Rarities Master of the North has struck again! This time with a likely country record upon confirmation of the ID by the WBCP Rarities Committee! Canvasback Ducks are usually found in the United States and Canada. These two females flew a long, long way over!

    There have been instances in the past where ducks have interbred resulting in a new species to watch. The way the drakes mate with the females on water is astonishing and sometimes the female drowns. I have rescued a few lady Mallards in my UK garden from amorous drakes who become very aggressive !!!!
