Aythya Hybrid at Buscot








There is currently an interesting Aythya hybrid on the lake at Buscot Park visible from the bridge along the bridleway which run south from the A417 3 kms west of Faringdon (SU 252969). From a distance it superficially resembles a drake Redhead but on closer inspection there's a lot wrong with it, not least when it flies. It spends much of the time with a drake Pochard. Something of interest though in these quiet times locally.
