Brighouse canal

A cheeky Dipper was trying to hitch a ride on a narrowboat in the canal baisin this morning, (sorry about the blurred photo) but then had second thoughts and ran across the mooring rope to the bank.
A few yards away a male Mandarin was putting on an impressive (and noisy) display to the Mallards; maybe it will find a willing female again this year.
A total of 131 Mallards were on the stretch of canal through the town centre.
