During our search for somewhere to live we passed through Tarleton en route for Southport. On the return journey we broke off and looked around the village. Although not suitable for us, we went down to the Rufford Arm of the L&L to see the new houses being erected near the swing bridge.
Amongst the small flotilla of ducks congregating around the bread dispensers were two birds we could not identify.
It does not sport the regulation tuft of the tufted duck brigade but a sort of pom-pom
If anyone can identify it for us we would be very pleased
