Here are my TOP TEN DUCKS
  1. Mallard - Ubiquitous but amazing - males very randy. All Mallards are brown in the summer
  2. Tufted duck - Like the one you have in the bath - but not yellow
  3. Goosander -Beautiful plumage
  4. Golden Eye - Always surprising every winter
  5. Gadwall - Looks smooth, serious and knowing
  6. Teal - Small like me
  7. Wigeon - Lovely colours
  8. Pintail - Slim, sophisticated and beautiful
  9. Shoveller - Mallard with a long snout
  10. Mandarin - Is it real?
If you go down to your local lake/resevoir you may catch them before they fly North.
Silly ducks - why don't they go to Spain like everyone else?

My favourite is either the Tufted or maybe the Common Pochard (which aren't).

I like a ruddy duck meself. Very dapper. Oh, and any duckling.

OOps I forgot the pochard - they don't seem to move about a lot, just duck and dive.
All ducklings are wonderful aren't they?
