Silver Teal

I had heard that this bird was visiting RSPB Old Moor in South Yorkshire so I thought I would go and see if it was still there. I searched for quite a while in a couple of the hides ut there was no sign. However, I eventually found it and it was showing well for a while. It is a dabbling duck and is a resident of South America so it wa snoce to see it in England. It has obviously escaped from somewhere in England but it was a welcome sight for me today!
