Duck Danger

This morning a sad sight for me when one of our ducks turned up badly injured.

She had obviously been attacked earlier  perhaps while nesting, for some of our ducks  have already started. I have seen this sort of injury before after a black back gull attack, or it may have been crows.

Unfortunately I did not have a net with me and could only give her a feed .Went back later with the net but she vanished into the riverside bushes at high tide.

Will keep trying to get her some medical attention, before she dies from infection.
