He’s back: mandarin drake at Perton

He

In mid-December, this mandarin drake stayed for several days on the lower pool at Perton, but when I visited just before Christmas I couldn’t see any sign it was still around.

Last week he was back, perhaps having found the spot where people come to feed the birds. He was swimming round near the ducks, geese, swans and gulls by the inlet to the upper pool.
