Spotted this guy in the little stream that runs through the gardens and the missus was close by. Normally they take of at the slightest intrusion, but this time they stuck around, allowing a nosy old photographer to take quite a few shots. One thing I found amusing was the mud on this otherwise impeccable drake’s head.
