Right Up My Street

Being in the right place at the right time is great when the special occasion arises. Today my neighbour Jim Mullen could not have been better placed to see a Mother duck and her brood of 7 ducklings walking up Douglas street. Jim had a double take, then the good sense to usher her into my garden just as I returned from the riverside, then gave me a hand to guide them into the garage and coop. She must have already crossed the busy Main road to walk up Douglas street and was heading for the river.

With predation being the worst I have ever known, keeping this lot safe for a while before release seems prudent.
