Tufted Duck

Description

The Tufted duck is a diving duck originating in the north-east of Asia. It is now fairly widespread in the UK because of introductions in collections. And despite being small for a duck, it is feisty and stands up for itself. The male (the one you can see here) is black and white. The female by comparison is light brown on the body and a darker brown on the neck and head.
