Female Mallard Duck Drinking On Visit To My Cottage Garden Scone Perthshire Scotland

Tour Scotland short Spring 4K wildlife camera travel video clip of the sight and sounds of a female Mallard Duck bird drinking on a visit and trip to the grounds of my cottage garden in Scone by Perth, Perthshire, Britain, United Kingdom. The Mallard, anas platyrhynchos, is the most familiar and widespread species of dabbling duck bird in Europe, including Britain and Ireland. The female has mottled brown plumage. Mallards are sociable ducks. The Mallard's adaptability to different types of environments has allowed them to spread to towns and cities. Some in parks and lakes can become very tame, especially if they are regularly fed by humans. I like to provide food which is great for attracting a wide variety of birds to the garden. Dates for Spring in the United Kingdom depends on whether you are following the astronomical or metrological calendar.

Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
