Author 'Crabecanoe' (Id 126841 ) : Monday, September 13, 2010 at SANTES (North). This duck Ruddy Shelduck is in a small pond of a farm association. She has no black ring between the head and the body (male). Her white mask around the eye is more important than the male. This bird is difficult to observe in the wild, mostly in captivity. But it is a migratory bird that could vanish at any moment when the banding. It's a bird quite timid.
