A walk around a local country park enabled us to see a number of visiting wildfowl, but unfortunately not close enough to ge any photographs

However, on our local lake, amongst the Mallards was this rather odd-looking individual. Since it didn't match any of the 'official' species in my books, I did a few web searches and concluded that it was a Mule Duck However, I have since been informed that it is a Blue Swede!
