Ferruginous Duck 16-07-2011

Today Morten Kofoed Hansen, Jimmy Skat Hansen and I, went Ducking at Maribosøerne in the southern part of Denmark. Maribosøerne is a lake area which has hosted Ferruginous Duck each year since 2004 except in 2007. At least five different birds has been seen. The first bird was found 31-10-2004, an adult male. Todays bird is probably the same individual which has been seen almost every year since.
