Grey Duck, Foxton

Grey Duck 2

It is pretty unusual to find a Grey Duck in New Zealand that is really “grey”, and not a hybrid with a Mallard.  One that truly resembles a Pacific Black Duck.  We found a pair today on the pond at the back of Foxton Beach on Palmer Road.  Nice white facial markings, dark bill and green speculum.
