Garganey

Latin name Anas querquedula

Family Swans, ducks and geese (Anatidae)

Overview
The garganey is a scarce and very secretive breeding duck in the UK. It is smaller than a mallard and slightly bigger than a teal. The male is most easily recognised with a broad white stripe over the eye. In flight it shows a pale blue forewing. It feeds by 'dabbling'.
