We must have offended the village ducks. Most years they have brought their young to see us, while they are very small. It is always a worry, some times she has left one behind, and I've caught it and re-united it with the family at the pond. Last years brood were featured here and the 2006 group are below.
She seems to have brought five to almost full size, which isn't too bad given the hazards that are around. Perhaps not bringing the all the way to our garden for several visits was a goo idea.
