As the weather has improved a bit I have started taking regular walks in Epping Forest with my trusty Nikon again. On Monday I spied a few Mandarin Ducks on two of the ponds but they were being very coy and all the photos were rubbish. Today was a different story, there were loads of them and it wasn’t long before this little chap was bearing down on me.
He then turned broadside to show me his sails
