A Stuffed Ferruginous Duck
A beautifully and realistically mounted Ferruginous Duck, a small, uncommon Eurasian duck of the Pochard family. It is also called a Fudge duck by those in the know... the official name refers to the rich chestnut colour of the male which also has the very pale/white eye which is not present in the female.
A wonderfully decorative piece of taxidermy, so it is.
30cm high x 24cm from beak to tip of tail x 18cm width of base
