A foreign tongue

Llantarnam Ponds south of Cwmbran supports an assortment of introduced domestic fowl, so one can never be sure that this pair of Mandarin duck are not someones idea of a mini wildfowl collection. Whilst the female stayed firmly in the middle of the pond the male was happy to feed on the grass between the pond and the main Llantarnam Industrial Estate road. Although it wouldn't tolerate my approach and on one occasion it took flight confirming its well and truly a free flying bird.
