Tufted Duck Info

Terry Coombs very kindly sent me the info on the nasal saddled Tufted Duck i reported yesterday.

Blue JN ringed 5/07/2007 Saint Suzanne, Pay de Loire, near to Mayenne, France.

It was first seen at Abbotsbury Swannery in September 2007 and has recorded every winter since though mine is the first sighting so far this winter. The bird returns to France in summer where it has been seen but it has yet to be proved breeding.

Hopefully going to be ringing a few coot and tufty in the morning at Radipole though the water levels looking pretty high so might just be coot.
