Fulvous Ducks at the Uniab River Mouth

Fulvous Duck Dendrocygna bicolor

I saw two Fulvous Ducks Dendrocygna bicolor on 21 December 2009 along the Skeleton Coast at some water at the mouth of the Uniab River.

Not sure if they have been recorded along the coast before. I did see two Fulvous Ducks here at the Swakopmund sewage plant during November 2007 as well.

Note that Fulvous Ducks are seen in the north, but are way outside of their normal range in the Swakopmund and coastal areas.
