Description:

I think these 'orange-headed' birds are Red-crested Pochards. Can someone confirm please. I saw the Pochard (Aythya ferina) near by and managed to get both types of duck in photos 1 and 2 so they can be compared with each other. Photos 3 and 4 show front and rear views of Red-crested Pochards (if that is what they are).
