I saw this pair at the weekend, I assumed they were Mallards and took the pictures for practice. When I looked at them this morning, I could'nt ID them and pulled out an old book on nature of the British Isles and believe that they are Garganey ducks? I haven't seen them before around here (north Wilts) and thought they would be interesting to share.
