A duckling for Neva!
Neva asked if I was going to post any photos of the ducklings I saw at Arundel Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. The answer's yes!
There are huge numbers of ducklings at the moment, but Nature can be hard. When I was there on Sunday some of the Mallards had broods of up to 17, but even by the next day the numbers had obviously declined. I saw a large gull carry one off yesterday right in front of me. I hope this little baby is one of the lucky ones. Sorry for the less than fluffy commentary, but as one of the WWT staff said to me yesterday "It's life, I'm afraid".
