Ducklings

Back to normal once more after Easter and with the weather still nice, but a little cooler, it was off round Straw's Bridge again this morning.  Glad we did too as the first of this year's ducklings were dabbling around in the shallows.
Ten of the little darlings, flitting about picking small insects from the surface of the water while their mother looked on.
Most of them didn't stray far from their parents - father was there too - but a few struck out on their own.
A quick quack from mother, soon brought them all scurrying across the water again.
