I was in Wexford in Ireland in a couple of years ago with a very experienced local birder when we spied some ducks on some wetlands about 300 metres away.  We scoped them up and had no trouble identifying them - bar one.  Visibility was not good with showers and wind.  After about 20 minutes of head-scratching (no, not lice) we suddenly realised that it was a decoy.

 I like this thread - I'm sure we've all been there - like my 10 minutes carefully stalking a rusty tin can bobbing about in reedbeds (when I lived in the UK thinking that I'd tracked down an unusual duck like a Ferruginous)!
