This hybrid drake ring-necked duck was a very smart bird. Arriving with a small group of tufted duck it was showing well as it was displaying with other drake tufted duck to a female tufted duck. A closer look at the wing bar revealed white secondries and it should be all grey in pure ring necked duck.
A little ringed plover and a ringed plover were on the salt water pool and a white wag and wheatear were on the long bank.
Chris D reports swallow, sand martin and wheatear at Prescot reservoir today.
