Here is a photo of a tufted duck (Aythya fuligula). The image is not that sharp because I had to crop heavily. But I wanted to show the tufted duck anyway because I believe that I never did so on my blog. But I guess the image is not too bad, you can see the subject well. I believe I have some better photos of this species somewhere in my library, I will upload them in the future if that is the case. The photo was taken near a pond called Herrenteich in Reinfeld.
