Baikal Teal - a "Local Patch" bird 16th Dec. 2008

Last Tuesday I pottered around the fields near our bijou residence. Despite the efforts of many to "trash" the landscape, their is quite a bit of birdable habitat left.... wait - I feel a 2009 theme coming on !

Meanwhile, the "bird of the morning" was this Baikal Teal - probably an eclipse male ( it's that time of the year, I suppose).

Most of them winter further north than hong kong, we seem to get only one or two per year, and mostly in Deep Bay, where they are all more distant than this one...
