  28. Great series of images. I am wondering about the Mandarin Duck. Did you see this in a wildfowl collection or did you go to Asia to see it there? It has actually become quite common in Britain now. I believe the largest feral population exists there.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
