New Additions To The College Waterfowl Community

The college waterfowl has seen the welcome addition of six young ducks to their community. These ducks, 8-9 weeks old, were introduced to the lake last week and have all settled in well with the other waterfowl. One duck has a rather unusual appearance, a powder-puff of feathers on its head, hence its newly given name 'Tufty'. This duck is a Crested Duck, for more information about this breed of duck and the fascinating science behind the powder-puff click on 'Crest'  (a link to The Domestic Waterfowl Club of Great Britain)
