West Park, Wolverhampton, West Midlands,

Ferruginous Duck, smart bird but from where????

Ferruginous Duck (Porrón Pardo / Aythya nyroca).
Julia dropped me off near to West Park and I walked in looked on the first pool I came to and I soon found the very smart looking male Ferruginous Duck (Porrón Pardo / Aythya nyroca) which had been around for a few days. It was fully winged and in good condition and generally none too tame, although it could be at times according to other reports.
