Some of the most colourful and attractive ducks to be seen in England are the non native mandarin ducks which have settled. This is one of the ducklings. They are not so colourful but have the distinctive shaped head and beak of the mandarin duck. Not sure whether this duckling is male or female. I think that it is a male duckling. As with most birds, the male of the species tends to be the most colourful.
