Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my blog recently especially my last post. I'm a bit behind on replying to those who I can reply to but I'll catch up this week sometime.
When it comes to new arrivals, I leave it up to the ducks to decide when is the best time and place for them to make a nest. They made an attempt earlier in the summer but I think the heat really worked against them. I even convinced myself that perhaps the drake was past his prime but I appear to be wrong on that account. Happy to be wrong I must say.
This little duckling who by the looks of things will grow up to be chocolate brown in colour and his siblings hatched out late last week. and how welcome they are even if it is very late in the season for baby ducks. I will stick with the notion that mother knows best- mother duck and mother nature.
There is a good chance that these will be the only pictures I'll share of the ducklings. They are so hard to catch even when they are just a few days old. They have an knack for ducking and weaving and evading capture and that's a good thing. Of course they don't know they are missing out so much coddling and spoiling. Lucky duck!
Have a great day,
