Last Ducklings Gone

As anticipated the two late ducklings have both gone, one yesterday, and the last one today. It's so sad that these poor little ducklings did not get a chance to survive. I watched the last one yesterday feeding and preening with it's Mother, the will to survive was so strong because it would have seen what happened to it's siblings over the previous two days. The night's are so long and the crows would be ready for them at daybreak, either that or the gulls!  It's hard to accept the total wipeout of these tiny birds, it's only their size that makes them so vulnerable.
