Well caught, Sanbaz. Lovely to see these at close range as they are usually so shy.

They look so 'not right' in trees don't they, when you're used to seeing them on the ground/in water. There's a couple of photos on Gee19's homepage of Mallards standing on her fence - I had to look twice - it's just not what you expect to see !! Great shots Sandra. :-)

your right muddy they do look strange on trees, hedges and fences, they are land birds but desperate measures i guess, hungry! thanx muddy :o))
