While we were away we stopped off at a lovely lake in the Forest of Dean call Mallard's Pike. We have been there many times before albeit better weather. There were planty of Mallard's on hand and this single Mandarin. The weather was none too kind, being wet, overcast and misty as well as cold. We only stayed for a short while, just enough time to feed the Ducks and take a couple of snaps. I hope you like him. Mandarin's always remind me of Emperor's in their golden silk robes with ornate designs.
Thanks for all the C&C's on my Robin, all are very much appreciated.
Have a good week and let's hope the weather improves.
