Runt Hatches Two

My Riverpark Runt has hatched two ducklings.

She laid several eggs around the garden but the gulls got most of them to start with. 

Only when I stuck a nest box under the bushes did she lay them all in the same place. Four did not hatch and appear to have died in shell, but she does have 2 for a first time Mum. 

The big worry now will be avoiding losing them to the gulls and Jackdaws that plague my garden !
