A new arrival at Bicclescombe Park, Ilfracombe, North Devon #ndevon

Last weekend, this chap (or girl) arrived.

Muscovy duck at Bicclescombe Park, Ilfracombe, North Devon

At first, he didn’t appear to be accepted by the other ducks and was hiding in a bush, but now he is swimming with all the other ducks in the duck pond.

What do the other ducks think about the new muscovy duck?

This duck appeared quite happy . . .
