32. Ferruginous Duck (Aythya nyroca)

A rare visitor to the UK, the Ferruginous Duck is classed as Near Threatened by the IUCN due to rapid declines in its European population, and the unclear situation of its Asian populations.

I'm fairly pleased with this one, hopefully I have managed to convey to some extent just how glossy this duck is!
