Sweet, sixteen ducklings!

Here are the photos as promised of the ducklings. This female Mallard nests on a neighbouring property every year in their Ivy. It has large broods of ducklings but this year pushed the limit!!
16 tiny mouths to feed. She will be a very busy mummy duck.

These images were provided by the neighbouring property. They expertly guided the mummy duck in to our Conservation Area where there will be lots of food and shelter for her whole family. Keep your eyes peeled for more ducklings on the lake.
