Sandbach Flashes, near Crewe, England.
In 1971, Mandarin Ducks were listed as a Category "C" bird in England by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, meaning there was sufficient population to be self-sufficient. Although not native, the population has grown to an estimated 7,000 ducks. While no breeding pairs were observed this spring in Sandbach, several ducks have taken up residence for the summer.
