Duck in a pond in the middle of.the city. Just two of this species.
Here's the first Ruddy Shelduck or Tadorna ferruginea I've ever seen. According to my field guide, they don't live in Spain, so this one seen floating on a canal at La Granja with some Pochards and one Mute Swan must have been captive?
seen 2 in the reservoir
