Mandarin duck in Norway

Went for a walk with the family today to a small area in Kristiansand that is called Ravnedalen. A Mandarin Duck had been spotted here lately and I hoped to catch a glimt of it. The area is a known local recreation area and they are feeding the birds. Around 25-30 mallards where residing in the pond along with two swans and the lonely Mandarin duck. This fellow is probably an escapee from a farmer since its not a local specie.
