Hannah K keeps an eye out in the People's Park...
We're all birdwatchers so here's some news :
The Mandarin Quack!
By Hannah Kalinin.
In Peoples Park I saw today another beauty duck. My estimate was a tufted duck as it was orange,white,black,and river,royalblue .
But it was soon googled by me.Answer :A mandarin duck, a type of tufted duck!
He is my fave bird. I have seen 1 of them before in the zoo but never as such a nice surprise in Bray!This bird comes from somewhere far beyond Peoples Park!I love this bird and I know everyone will agree!!!
A Poem About the Mandarin Duck.
This little duck ,full of her own little luck,
She sits on a stone ,it's her little home,
She dives , she dances,taking mallard duck chances,
She looks in her cool , clear ,river water pool(mirrior)
She: her name is Mandy , loving places sandy ,
She has an eye for a nest , She always looks her best ,
Of her chicks we can dream , Would always have a shiny sheen ,
