Mandarin Duck

Posted: November 28, 2019 in Birds, Natural History

The Mandarin Duck originates from South East Asia. They were introduced into the UK as part of wildfowl collections in stately homes, but a number escaped from captivity and began to breed in the wild, establishing small feral populations around the country. The majority of these are in Southern England, but populations also occur in other parts of the country.

These were photographed at the London Wetland centre.
