This very grey-coloured dabbling duck, a little smaller than the mallard, and with an obvious black rear end. It shows a white wing patch in flight. When seen close up the grey colour is made up of exquisitely fine barring and speckling. It nests in low numbers in the UK and is an Amber List species.
A scavenging bird of prey found mainly in the Falkland Islands and off the extreme southern tip of Argentina and Chile. This one is in Beale Wildlife Park near Reading.
