Notes on Mallard Ducks

Mallard Ducks are plentiful in Hankelow, and there are resident populations on the village pond and the pond by Woolfall Farm.

Every spring they pair off, among much noisy squabbling, and find nest sites in the gardens around the village. The pair in the photo above were behind the Green Farm.
