ruddy shelduck

P1180484.jpgI spotted this lovely chestnut water bird at Kensington Gardens in London. The information on their website to aid in identifying birds to the Gardens is very limited. The bird is not in my British Wildlife book either.. again this only has a limited coverage of birds. I was guessing this was a Wandering Whistling-Duck at a different stage/gender as the bird in the post below. But I have had it identified as a Ruddy Shelduck and changed my entry accordingly.

    Both look a lot like our Black-bellied Whistling Ducks in Florida, USA
