God put me on earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I'm so far behind that I'll never die.

Brilliant photos folks. Thanks for sharing.

ExFem - your story reminds of one my brother told. He said to his friend " Look , there goes a Woolly Necked Stork" to which his friend replied " Wheres Willie next door?"

Just stumbled across this thread and simply had to share this sighting of a bird which is not common here but escaped from several zoos and bird parks and now meanwhile has colonized themselves in the Northern part of Europe - The Mandarin Duck :thumbs_up:

We were very glad to find them and there were about 10 males "fighting" for the female in the second picture.

It was around zero degrees outside but they did not bother the cold :thumbs_up:
