Does anyone know what this duck is please, it`s in the Netherlands
A frivolous whistling duck ? But if it is, it’s way off course.
One of duxdelux buddies?
Duck a l'orange?
My avatar moves just to dodge bad jokes like the above.....
I thought you were on an invisible spit!!!!
Shifty keeps threatening me with being crispy fried.......
We think it’s an Egyptian goose
Ok, own up.....who goosed the Egyptian?
Thats why they do the funny walk!!
It wasn’t me guv, honest. Well, the judge believed me anyway
It’s an Egyptian Goose, related to the Shelduck. There is a feral population breeding in England - mostly in East Anglia. Presumably the same thing has happened in the Netherlands.
I think your probably correct, thank you.
Theres plenty of feral breeding in East Anglia full stop.
Long way to fly for the day
Normally only seen in pairs, but in Holland last week by a lake behind Delft Hout campsite, there was a big flock of them, probably 200 in all, the most I have ever seen together.
Goose a L'orange?
It's a cross between a pheasant and a duck, normally referred to as a flying phuck.
Quite agree with that. mostly Norfolk.......
