Found these that I'd taken at one of the dams on Greater Woodmead Estate back in 2016 before joining iSpot and iNaturalist. Have been trying for so long to get photos but when an opportunity arises they invariably disappear in among the reeds. Was just lucky in clearing photos from files that I found these.

Seen here on one of our dams hanging around with an African Black Duck. Stayed alongside it for several days and then disappeared. A pair used to frequent this dam and were quite aggressive toward the Yellow-billed duck and would do everything possible to cut the Yellow-billed mother off from her youngsters.
