Red-crested pochard, new species on Dutch island

This is a red-crested pochard video from the Lake of Geneva in Switzerland.

Dutch birdwatcher Debby Doodeman writes about going by boat to De Kreupel, an island in the big IJsselmeer lake, on 17 May 2015.

There, she saw a male red-crested pochard. Maybe, his female partner sat on a nest not far away? Maybe there will be an answer to that, later at De Kreupel.

Red-crested pochards had never been seen on De Kreupel before. About 400 couples of this species nest in the Netherlands.
