Mandarin Ducks

A mandarin duck inspects a parade of potential suitors. Alas none came up to expectations. The pond is in Burnham Beeches, a large stretch of woodland in Buckinghamshire that was purchased by the City of London, in the 19th century for the enjoyment of Londoners.

Location: Burnham Beeches, Buckinghamshire
