|Mandarin Duck (Aix galericulata) Ducks, Geese and Waterfowl (Anatidae)|
|Mandarinand ~ Pato Mandarín ~ Mandarinand|
During the last decades the species has been expanding its European breeding range, centered in the northwest around the British Channel, and is now reaching Denmark on a more regular basis. The birds in Europe appear to be sedentary, why it is taking a while for the expansion to happen. As a consequence of this behavior, the species has now, from 2021, been moved to the Danish C-list, indicating that it is an introduced species with a self-sustainable population.
