Hi Alan,

Do you know what Peter means with 'pair of birds'?
(1) Does 'birds' mean 'Red-crested Pochards' or 'mystery birds that may
have been Red-crested Pochards'?
(2) Does 'pair' mean 'adult breeding plumage male and female'? In late
October most adult males should be in breeding plumage but some may still
be in eclipse.

Red-crested Pochard is one of the most commonly kept pet ducks.

Best wishes,
