Spring is really blossoming here in England. I have some lovely flowers in my garden and over at my sister's pond she currently has a brood of ducklings!! 2 weeks ago my sister went to feed the wild mallard ducks that visit her pond only to be greeted by 10 ducklings as well!! It seems Mrs Mallard had been secretly nesting...Sadly 3 ducklings have been lost and we think it is the local owls as they seem to disappear in the night (the owls are probably feeding their own babies) it is sad but that is nature and why Mrs Mallard had 10 ducklings - anyway here are a few little pics of the ducklings (when there were 9) they are not too good quality because the ducklings would not keep still and were a little shy of me!
I think there are 8 here on the banks and in the water with Dad and 2 Uncles!
Let's see what else there is to do....off we go......
