Observation details

Of unknown provenance. Occasional breeder in Sweden as per Lars Svensson. Their arrival coincided with an influx of Ruddy Shelduck into the UK which suggests they might come from a wild, naturalised population from near continent rather than they are escaped birds from an aviary. The time of the year (when Ruddy Shelduck is usually observed) also supports the fact.
