Well actually it's a drake! A very pretty little duck, and after some research I found out that it is called a Carolina! Near enough to "Carol", I'll think I will adopt it as a mascot!
Thanks for all your comments yesterday, I'm pleased you enjoyed the Meerkat! The interview went well but I don't think it was the job for me. Still waiting to hear about the one last week, but not looking hopeful. Back to the drawing-board!
Have a good day!
PS: also known as a Wood Duck (thank you Martinjp!!)
