We have some ducklings on the river behind us. The mother did start off with about 10 but they are unfortunately down to about 4. Lorna actually saw Mum crossing the road with them all waddling behind her. I know it would be disastrous if they all survived as there are probably five times as many on the canal also and we would be over run with ducks, but I do hope some of them make it.


They are just so funny when they sort of run over the surface of the water when they are in a hurry.
