Ferruginous Duck, adult male, 17.2.2013, Sminge Sø, Denmark

This beautiful male Ferruginous Duck was found by Tage Holdgaard Andersen on 12 February 2013 and it was still present today in Sminge Sø near Silkeborg where it was mainly associating with a female Pochard. It seems to prefer to leave the site whenever fishermen sail on the lake; however, it has been twitchable each day as it returns when the human activity on the lake stops. It is the 64th national record and only the 3rd in East Jutland - these three have all been adult males.
