Shelduck – 1894

COMMON SHELDRAKE, Tadorna cornuta – Resident.

This handsome duck has been seen by Sir Hugh Owen, on the sands at Goodwick. Mr. Dix states that a pair or two nest on sand-hills below Milford Haven. Numbers nest on sandhills near Laugharne, just beyond the eastern borders of the county, in Carmarthenshire. A Sheldrake was captured, with other fowl, on Orielton decoy, one winter.
