Killed Within Hours

After only 5 hours in the River , The newly released duckling has been killed by a black backed gull and crows. It is hard for me to take, having nurtured this duckling for 7 weeks and only putting it in the river hours ago.

It was almost fully grown, so it gives you an idea of what little chance ducklings have, faced with these kind of predators.
