It maybe just a Mallard but just look at the beautiful markings and colours. I had a smile on my face watching her this morning on the Ice sliding around. I was hoping to see a Goosander, but as there was Ice on the lake the Goosander must of took off. I was lucky to see 2 White-Throated Dippers in the River. Despite many dog walkers, the dippers do not seem to be put off even though the dogs retrieve their sticks and balls from the river which the owners throw in.
