A short wander to my local park at the very start of February yielded a treat.
Not only had the spring-summer resident Tufted Duck arrived, but two other guests were mingling between the throng of resident Mallards. Two (bossy) Gadwall were enjoying the delights of the local duck pond, squaring up to any Mallard deemed to have stepped out of line!
I think these petite ducks are rather pretty, certainly a welcome guest to my local park!
