Their First Paddle

by EarthHart in Wildlife, in all its forms

The 14 Mallard ducklings on the Moat for the first time.

A few minutes after this, three drakes started having a go to mount their mum. I clobbered one with a well aimed stone, and the other two flew off. One more reason why the drakes should be culled. How the duck & her brood survive, well I'll be keeping a close eye when I'm there.
