Lucky Seven

Phone call this evening from Nairn resident Phil McBride about another late brood of seven ducklings and Mother duck in their garden. When I arrived I saw 2 Crows at the bottom of the cul de sac, waiting on the mother and ducklings to descend towards the river. The Mother was spooked and I failed to catch her with the small net, she flew off but at least got the 7 ducklings. I estimate they are about 10 days old, where she came from I've no idea, but Burnetts place is close to the river. 

Will see if I can get them back to Mum, rather than end up keeping them for 5 or 6 weeks !
