  9. Bob - can I assume the great schnozz on this duck gives rise to the name? I am in your country for the next couple of weeks and looking forward to seeing different flora and fauna than back home!

  14. Not quite as striking in eclipse plumage as in full breeding plumage, Bob, but nevertheless still handsome, and that bill is a tool to be reckoned with! My very best wishes - - - Richard
