MUSCOVY DUCK 8/12/2015

Made a trip down west yesterday morning, stopped off at Sandy cove to have a look around, not much happening a few Great Northern Divers and a Razorbill out in the bay and a Goldcrest and a couple of Chiffs in the shrubs next to the car park.
Then went down to Drift Res to see if the Mandarin Duck was showing, but did not locate it.
Still this Muscovy Duck was down by the gate and giving really close views, sometimes so close I could not get it all in the frame.
I know this is not a native species and is often bypassed by birders, But is still a great looking bird in its own right.
