Wow! one helluva size! is it a hybrid?

looks like a rare Sea Eagle-Duck!

Yes Mike I think it is a hybrid but if you notice it still has the curly tail of the Mallard. At the same location I think there was a hybrid Tufted Duck and I have uploaded it here, and this one has retained the tufted head.

Lovely to see!

Regards, Peter

Mike is right, this one makes my Mallards look like a midget. You must feed your ducks well in England.

Will have to come back for a longer visit when I have more time and see more of your gallery.

Thanks JF,

It was nice to see that this very big lad was completely at home with all his mates!

I will look forward to your visits.

Best Regards Peter

Had a tiny peek last night. But Mike has kept me busy this morning answering all his comments. Will get back again soon.

Interesting. Those curls..... If I'd known what to look for I'd have seen em Peter but I am amazed by the size of this guy. I wonder what it is a cross with ?

Warmest regards from North Carolina

What a party treat that would be

to roast him Peking style

with skin so dark and crispy!

Shred the breast and leg meat too

to roll in pancakes with salad , Hoi sin sauce and Plum sauce too

then serve it up for me and you.


Come to think of it, you might want to invite a few freinds too, he is a BIG BOY!
