A rare sight.
When admiring the Mandarin ducks this week, pictures of an unknown fowl were also taken, when investigated it was identified as a Blue Winged Goose. A bird that is incorrectly named as it belongs to the Shellduck family. It apparently comes from Ethiopia and is recognised as a vulnerable species due to diminishing habitat availability. It needs water so we know why this one is here .

Back to my pictures now.
Yeovil is proving to be a bit of a cosmopolitan place for the world’s wildlife.
