Mandarians in Baden-Baden~

Beautiful Mandarin ducks – lovely to see!

These guys werenโ€™t part of my plan for the day!

I was going to show you Baden-Baden,

but the Mandarins got in my way!

Why are Mandarin Ducks swimming wild in Germany you may well wonder?

Although Mandarin Duck populations are dwindling in their native Russia and Asia, some escapees from captivity are breeding in the wild in Germany and The UK. I happened upon these guys today on the Oos River in Baden-Baden Germany.

So, it is cheers to you, and Happy Spring, from the gorgeous Mandarins in Baden-Baden Germany~
