found this swimming around on the rye at high wycombe buckinghamshire uk. not native to britain.
food...water plants grain
habitat..forest and likes fast flowing water
eggs...9-12 white and oval
yes this duck is real, no i have not photoshopped it, came out like this, the sun was stronge and the colours just seem to jump out at you.
if anything i think its a bit over exsposed

    Mandarin Duck is its name and there are a lot of them in the Napa CA USA area. I did not believe it first but a google search proved them true.
    I want to see them live and give them a photo shoot
