They're keeping busy then. I didn't know that they went in for multiple broods.

Thank you for the days, the days you gave me.
The older I get, the better I was!

The previous juveniles are still around helping the parents feed the chicks. :) :) :)

We got back to the caravan post lockdown after the main duck breeding period and have seen a string of probably 30 or more ducks heading from the lake out on a scrounging circuit around the caravans several times. The string is so similar to the ones of ducklings following a mother that you see I think they are probably all related but far too many for a single brood. More this year than usual so the absence of people seems to have helped rather than hindered.

My local sparrows, there's a big hawthorn bush that's been a Sparrowery for many years, seem to have synchronised their breeding and there must be a dozen or more new little ones causing havoc at the birdbath and house..Mad little sods..Wonderful to watch..
