escapee

Looks like an escapee of some kind. Will have a look in my ducks and geese of the world book. Definetly not a pochard and I would be more inclined to say it was a goose.

Australian Wood Duck

Clearly an escapee! It seems to be a duck after all, Australian Wood Duck.

Thanks for that I agree it looks like a Australian Wood Duck, so must be an escapee.
