Mandarin Duck

By GillyB    
Better known than the Falcated Duck of my last upload, this pretty Mandarin Duck was also paddling around Martin Mere.

Many thanks to Peter for his much appreciated award on my last upload and to everyone for their votes and comments ... and of course for taking the time to look at this one.
