Mandarin Duck I visited Etherow Park at sunrise mainly for the dawn chorus and found a tree full of Mandarin Ducks. I knew they nested in trees but was unaware until this point that they also roosted in trees. Geotagged,Spring,United Kingdom Click/tap to enlarge

I visited Etherow Park at sunrise mainly for the dawn chorus and found a tree full of Mandarin Ducks. I knew they nested in trees but was unaware until this point that they also roosted in trees.
