On Standby

Cygnet hatching draws closer, and Duke is on standby ready for the big event. 

Within days we will all know if he has been virile with Penny, and how many offspring they have produced. Considering he was pretty sick a couple of times just before mating time, I will be happy if they even have a few cygnets. 

The lower river ducklings - currently 14 continue to survive and grow. Weather has been very kind this spring and the warm moist conditions now favour an explosion of plant and insect life, ideal for duckling growth.
