RED-CRESTED POCHARD young drop from 9 to just one

When Vicky first located this female RED-CRESTED POCHARD on Marsworth Reservoir, she had 9 ducklings in tow. Nearly two weeks later and that number has reduced to just one. Chaz Jackson recorded the moment for posterity - the occurrence representing the first pure breeding of the species at the reservoirs (last year, she paired with or was raped by a drake Mallard)
