This is a bird I have heard of but don't recall having ever seen, Ed: so Slimbridge and you are delivering the goods for me.
Very interesting plumage colours and with subject posing to perfection.

A very fruitful day at Slimbridge with yet another great bird image.
He looks as if he's got two different coats on with all those colours.
