Obviously a pair (Drake & Duck)..You wouldn't expect such exotic birds to be seen on a Wigan pond...Just shows the diversity of wild life that abound this area..Great pic, colours captured so well!

V.good David, surely the most colourful birds to visit us.

Lovely photograph David.

Such beautiful colours/markings on the male bird. It would appear that most male birds such as pheasants, peacocks, finches, etc, are a lot more colourful than the females, who can look quite dowdy.

Thank goodness it's the opposite in us humans, eh ladies?!!
