Final Duck Tally 2012

Hope I'm not tempting fate, but it looks like the 5 late ducklings approaching the three weeks old mark will survive. This Mother duck has been keeping them close and percentage wise she is about the best survivor this year with 5 out of 8. This brings this years total survivors to 22 with 76 fatalities, although that's only what I have visibly seen, so I'm pretty certain the fatalities are above this figure.
The shooting season has now started, so I'm always pleased to see around 100 ducks on the lower river keeping out of harms way.
