30/04/2014 Etherow Country Park, Compstall

Mandarin Duck: My last day at work before my two week holiday and trip to Croatia and I found myself doing some training at Etherow CP.

You know its been a good day at the office when you are surrounded by the brightest and dainty duck that the UK has to offer - even if it was originally a fence hopper!

I counted 11 drake and only 4 females, however I only walked around half the site, staying on the Keg Wood side of the lake.

What a bird!
