An interesting collection. Some of your ducks have such intricate plumage at a "micro" level! Season's greetings to you too.

Wow Russell your ducks seem not to mind you approaching them, even allowing for a long lens. No chance here of a Pochard and the others in collections or park ducks only

Happy Christmas
