Feisty Duck Brood Released

At almost 5 weeks old, today I released the feisty mother and her brood of 9 ducklings who were previously trapped behind a riverside wall. 

Hopefully they will be too big for the crows now, and the Mother will protect them well. I know she is feisty enough, since she attacked me a couple of times while replacing her straw bedding - she thought I was about to pick up one of her ducklings ! ( Short video below )
