Birdwatchers have swooped on a Melbourne suburb after a rare European duck was sighted.
The lone male tufted duck made its first recorded sighting in Australia at Melbourne Water's Western Treatment Plant in Werribee last week
Since then rare birdwatchers – known as twitchers – have flocked there for a glimpse of it.
The Eurasian bird migrates south in the European winter to India and southern China.
The bird is known for its luscious plumage.
