Duckling Update

Not great news I’m afraid, from the original 24 the number quickly dropped to 15!! There are a lot of dangers for these new arrivals from mink, herons and pike to attacks from other ducks and geese.

I’ve been back today and only saw one of the broods. This is the female who originally had 10 but who now only has 4 remaining. When I spotted them they were on the bank huddled up in a ball of feathers.

Glad to see my favourite little odd ball has survived so far, so fingers crossed he can make it.
