Seven of the eight Mandarin, present on Felbrigg Lake this evening

Encouraged by the continuing mild weather and good light I decided to take an evening walk around Felbrigg lake. I was glad I did as there was plenty to see. The flock of fifteen Tufted Duck were still present from this morning, together with the two female Wigeon, three Teal and an amazing eight Mandarin Duck – three males and five females. They made a colourful display – accentuated by the evening sun. This is the largest group I’ve seen on the lake for a couple of years, I think. The Kingfisher was very vocal along the western edge of the lake as usual.

Couldn’t quite get the whole group in one shot!
