This pair of Mallards has been visiting for a few days now
... and so has this Moorhen
I've watched the Moorhen face off the female Mallard
... and the duck has backed off ...
I've not seen this happen before, they usually share the space amicably.
And the reason why? ... just to the stern of Still Rockin' under the thick hedge she's made a nest ...
... and her partner is bringing more bits of vegetation for that nest
It's keeping him very busy!
