Falcated Duck at Farmoor, Oxfordshire.

Cloudy, 2°, light WNW.
An adult male Falcated Duck found at Farmoor today, if found to be a genuine vagrant will be a first for the county. It was unringed and fully winged so maybe a good candidate.
Falcated Duck is an East Asian species that breeds over much of south-east Siberia, Russia, south to northern Mongolia, China, and Japan.
Also at Farmoor, one Slavonian Grebe, three Greater Scaup, Goldeneye, Shovelor with the many Tufted Duck and Mallard.
