[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While walking with my students to a water reservoir in the hills of North Yorkshire during our recent trip to a school in Skipton, I noticed quite a few of these birds swimming around in a water channel. I do not have much experience of water birds and believe on the basis of a little research that they are Mallards. I guess this is either a female or an immature male of the species. Experts are welcome with their advice.
Thanks for viewing.
