|Male Mandarin displaying|
I moved on to Cannop Ponds in the Forest of Dean with the hope of finding Mandarins. I was not disappointed as there was a flock of 12 present. They gently floated out from under their tree roost and gave wonderful views. The males in full plumage were indulging in territorial display.
