Regular visitors to our campsites small lake are our family of wild Mallards. The males are unmistakable with their distinctive dark green heads, yellow bill and a kind of purple-brown on their breast. The females are mainly brown with an orange to black bill. We've been told that Mallards in the UK can be resident or one of the many migrant birds that breed in Iceland and northern Europe spend their winter here in North Devon.
If you do come across them nesting around the lake, we do ask that you leave them undisturbed.
