3 Amigos

Walking down by the lake and the bridge the other day we caught sight of some of the local residents in more animated mood than usual.  Normally the mallards will waddle over to see if you have any food for them then sidle off in disgust when it’s not forthcoming.  This time however they seemed a bit more cautious than usual (maybe they have eggs they’re protecting) and headed off a bit sharpish…

The three drakes wouldn’t let me get too close.
When approached they headed off to the relative safety of the other side of the stream.
Another drake took off showing his bright blue wing feathers as he made his getaway.
A herring gull made a more approachable subject as he posed on the rail of the bridge.
