Nodding Ducks

Last weekend Zoe and I saw a pair of ducks on the Kennet that were systematically nodding at each other.  The pair consisted of a male and a female mallard so I assume that this was some form of courting ritual.  One would bob its head a few times then the other would do it in return.  It was quite striking to watch, but we couldn't stay long as we were in a hurry to get home.
