The wigeon is a medium-sized duck with a round head and small bill. It is not a common breeding bird but can be seen in large numbers in the winter when populations are boosted by scandanavian birds. It can be found on estuaries, coastal marshes and freshwater lakes. It lives on a diet of aquatic plants, grasses and roots.
