DU Exports NZ Shoveler

For the first time in twenty years the Wildfowl Trust, Slimbridge, received two pair of New Zealand Shoveler in 
August, sent by Ducks Unlimited.
These shoveler were captive-reared birds kindly donated by Mr Bill Clinton-Baker of Hasterton.
The birds arrived at the Wildfowl Trust in excellent condition and after a short period in quarantine will be placed in the Trust aviary.

Our cover shows DU member Julian Hayes about to place the first of the shoveler into the export crate.
