6 MANDARIN DUCKS: disused gravel pits, Westland Green, 2 miles west of Little Hadham. Very flighty and took to the air before I had actually seen them. Circled 4 times before briefly alighting on the main pit and then landed in a small pit which they seem to favour. Here there's plenty of cover that they prefer.

Poor quality photo on my blog:

These are the first Mandarins I have recorded in Herts for over 5 years. Never had 6 together (Jono Forgham)
