Other Description

Signed limited edition of 150 from an original oil-painting.

This strikingly patterned, large duck stands out very clearly from the mud-flats where it is most likely to be seen – its beak in the soft mud, busy dabbling for the tiny marine snails that form the bulk of its diet. From a distance it looks black and white. Indeed, its name derives from ‘shield duck’, which means pied duck. However, at close quarters the full beauty of its plumage and its fire-station red bill can be seen. Nesting in old rabbit burrows and the like obviates the need for camouflage and the duck steps out as boldly as the drake. There is nothing subtle about this bird’s markings. Its distinctive ‘hard-edge’ pattern is unmistakable.
