Northern Pintail [Anas acuta] female


Write and tell me if you  see  any Bohemian Waxwings, we have a new section. Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.uk. There is a photo of a Blue Tit, and a photo of  the Burrowing Owl in the 'Guest Photos '. I have started a new sightings page, please feel free to add your sightings.

  1. It is my understanding that these ducks can hybridize and therefore not be true to species.

  5. Hi Bob, could as Marc says be a Pintail and more than likely is, but difficult to be 100% sure. However great images of what ever it is.
    Hope things went well at Slimbridge. Regards John

    1. I agree with you, but, I don't believe it is a Pintail John. I am still open.

  16. Serene and beautiful. And surprisingly low in the water in the first and third shots. Had she just come out of a dive?
