Transformation



At around 7 weeks, our nine river ducklings seem to make a huge overnight transformation - growing almost from ducklings to ducks.


With the colder temperatures and virtually no insect life around, they are eating  courtesy of the Trust, and whatever else they can. Notice the photo below showing some of the ducklings on the right, having a nibble at the Algae growth on the river wall. 


The mother duck is doing a great job, protecting, teaching and escorting.....I hope most of them are female !!  Short movie clip below.
