Reports of a Blue Winged Teal at Daventry Reservoir had many birders arriving for a three hour search. I arrived not knowing if it was a drake, duck or juvenile! Lee Evans arrived and with the aid of mobile phone technology, a lively debate ensued. Eventually, the Blue Winged Teal was downgraded to a hybrid / cross with Shoveler! Another Daventry controversy - remember the Yellow Legged Greenshank thingy?
I offer below some images and comment is obviously welcomed!
Anyone in for a "two bird " theory!
