Ruddy Shelduck Tadorna ferruginea

Ruddy Shelducks, with their almost orange-coloured bodies fading to almost white on their heads, look completely different from all other European wildfowl. In flight the startlingly neat black and white wing pattern is also characteristic although there is a chance of confusion with Egyptian Goose, a species which now has feral breeding populations in parts of England, Holland and Belgium. The goose, however, is slightly bigger and paler-bodied.

Breeds and winters beside coastal lakes and deltas and also on inland lakes, rivers and marshes on high-altitude plateaux.

Photographed at the Arundel Wildlife and Wetland Centre.

Est-ce que ce canard est un vrai canard ou est-il en bois? Oui je m'en doute. Tr鑚 belles couleurs!

Almost looks to be a decoy. Excelent capture and well done on the composition.
Beautiful lighting and exposure. TFS

Excellent capture! Great colors!! In my opinion this is one of your very best duck-shots! I love it. Very well done & TFS!

Technical quality:****
Wow factor:****

Great shot, maybe getting the full shadows would have been good.
Well done.

A great sharp shot with good feather detail.

The only improvement to your shots I can offer is to try and change your POV to duck level.
