Mandarin ducks in old harbour

This video from California in the USA says about itself:

21 September 2015

Beautiful male Mandarin duck in breeding plumage and pretty Wood ducks up close at a lake in the Santa Monica Mountains enjoying the morning sunshine. Original music by Tommy Moreno.

This video is the sequel.

Today, I went to the old harbour. It was years ago that I had seen mandarin ducks there. Then, it was a cold winter and much of the harbour was frozen.

It was not a cold winter today. A male and a female mandarin duck swam in the water. later, they rested on the opposite bank.

Other birds in the harbour: mallards, moorhens and coots. In trees near the water a great tit and wood pigeons.
