Mandarin Duck Delight

A lovely sunny day at the Sculpture Park, the trees are beginning to turn and Sculptures were bathed in superb light. Sat by the upper Bretton Lake , two male Mandarin Duck came into view, keeping close together and looking stunning. They flew off a few minutes later in response to the resident swans throwing their weight about.

The local birds have been putting on a show in the last few days so I could not resist taking their portraits.
