All grown up.
Just before the team cleared up a Willow which had fallen on one of the floating islands, we were greeted by this lot. In the photo there are around 11 ducklings (which are probably from the brood of 16 mentioned in the blog), and a different family of 2 younger ones with mum close by.
There was around 16 of the older ducklings in the area but only 11 posed for the photo. Later on a Coot with a nest nearby was not happy by all the attention and chased everything off!!
