Green Winged Teal

A drive over to Bude marshes to look for the drake Green Winged Teal ,( or out for a duck as the wife put it ).It was where it was supposed to be, feeding fairly close to the road alongside Common Teal & Mallards, allowing me to grab one or two record shots.

The Green Winged Teal (Anas carolinensis) is a vagrant from North America with one or two usually turning up in Cornwall & Devon in most winters.Nice bird.
