Interesting Wigeon

Saturday 24th December
Had this interesting and quite distinctively cold grey-headed Wigeon on Christmas Eve. It seems to potentially show some female American Wigeon features but it is not perfect and may just be a grey variant Eurasian.

Unfortunately, most of the photos were in harsh light as my camera ran out of battery when the light was better, of course! Sadly, I did not manage to get the
all important underwing shot showing the axillaries with the time I had available. No sign of bird since.......
