This is a resident Mandarin duck, Aix galericulata, that lives with a raft of  Mallards. It is a feisty male, that fights for it’s share of food, that is usually thrown over by local residents. It has a great personality and definitely thinks he’s the ring leader, I just wish he could find a suitable partner. It can be seen on Cragg Brook, below the foot bridge, between The Shoulder of Mutton and Streamside Close, Mytholmroyd, on most days.
