Duck Life 07
After a burst of hot, sunny weather we're back to rolling rain showers and thunder, with brief dry spells. I debated going out, knowing I might get caught in the rain, but I needed to get out the house for a while. I am glad I risked the weather as I came across Mama Duck and two adorable wee ducklings on the canal.
Not sure if this is the same family I saw the other week further down the canal, hoping not as that group had five or six ducklings around this age and I would hate to think this was all that is left of them due to predation. May be a different duck family, of course, hoping so! If you are wondering about the odd colour of the water, it is reflected from a nearby house barge the ducklings were swimming by
