Red-crested Pochard (Netta rufina)

Appearance:

Big and plump-bodied diving duck with long neck, rounded head and long bill. Male unmistakable with it's red head, long deep-red bill, distinct white flank-patches and black belly. The contrasting light grey cheeks of the female recalls female Common Scooter, but note round head, pale body and much longer neck and bill. Both sexes with very broad and striking white wingbar clearly visible in flight.

Sound:

Female: Indistinct "ahrrrr -ahrrrr -ahrrrr" similar to other female diving ducks. Male: a nasal dry "qweeeek" similar in timbre to Goldeneye male, but mostly monosyllabic and with an almost barking quality.
