Go on. We trust you! when you realise its head is pointing forward (unlike the two ducks) it gets clearer.

Yesterday I went to one of the neighbouring Islands looking for

#38 Red-crested Pochard (Netta rufina) at Lake Hejrede, Denmark

The bird is a rare breeder in Denmark and is only breeding in that area.

Unfortunately the birds were at the wrong end of the lake.

Today I went to the Eastern side of the Island, hoping for some migration.

Only a few Buzzards and Kites but I managed to get a lifer.

This is actually a very common duck that breeds in the far North of the globe. It is a common winter visitor to Denmark but is often far out from the coast.

#44 (IOM 27) Long-tailed Duck (Clangula hyemalis)

This was actually a lifer for me
