Mandarins, Ferry Meadows

Mandarin are not often seen around the Peterborough area and certainly not right in front of a hide at the country park. A perfect digiscoping opportunity and some nice images from the party of five birds. The group included adult female, eclipsed male and juveniles but the species is hard to age with certainty.

Mandarin (Aix galericulata)

Digiscoped with the Nikon CP995, Leica APO77 and 20x eyepiece.
