I found this very smart looking male Mandarin duck on the banks of Bottoms reservoir in Macclesfield. They have been in the area for a number of years and although not native to this country, they are quite pretty to look at.
Very photogenic and colourful.
The markings on this bird are amazing. Beautiful!ReplyDelete

Gorgeous duck, fantastic photos!ReplyDelete
One of my all time favourite birds as there used to be some on the river near us when I was a child so they were the first duck I could identify albeit not a native one! #AnimalTalesReplyDelete
