White-faced Whistling-Duck Dendrocygna viduata

This species has a wide distribution in Africa and at least one record from Spain is believed to have come from there. However the species is also common in captivity and escapes are more likely to be encountered further north. The first of these photos are from the species' native range in Africa. The species also occurs in South America.
