WHITLINGHAM: White-cheeked Pintail hybrid

Mid-April 2019

A late afternoon walk at Whitlingham with Cathy & Rose meant that I caught up with the White-cheeked Pintail x Mallard hybrid that has been moving between Whitlingham and Strumpshaw. It has been hanging around the slipway fairly regularly, but I hadn't seen it up until that point. Whilst there I also read the rings of five Mute Swans, which have probably travelled a combined total of zero km, but you never know.
