Mandarin flight

When the Mandarin drake took off from the duckpond in Bushy Park, Dublin, I fired off six or seven shots, but only two were in focus. This is the second one.

One of my contacts tells me that these gorgeous birds have been seen elsewhere in Dublin along with other rare species. Perhaps it is a result of global warmiing.
