Duck family update

Duck family

I thought people would like an update on the duck family.  It seems one duckling has been lost but the rest are doing well and mom looks like she’s doing a good job of keeping them under close watch.  The weather has not been too bad for them but there are plenty of potential predators around, so I would not expect all these to make it, sadly.  I hope I’m wrong.

    Good news so far then

      Yes. It’s a bit sad to see them slowly reduce in number but that’s nature.

    She is doing wonderfully well if she has only lost one.

      Yes she is. It’s sad she’ll almost certainly lose more but that’s just the way it always is and it’s part of life.

    🙂 You seem to religiously keep a track of growing animal/bird babies. i had this ‘hobby’ as a kid… never got bored with this.. Nice to find someone who still finds time to care for these babies…

      Thank you. I’m just an old ‘tree hugger’ who loves life in all its shapes and forms. A source of endless wonder.
