The Magnificent Seven

Waking up to hard frost outside I think the ducklings were saved in the nick of time, I'm glad I took decisive action to save them yesterday. This morning they enjoyed a salad breakfast by way of soft lettuce and a dip in the sink.( short video below). Meanwhile I posted a life size pic of their Mum inside their brooder, they have settled nicely and cuddled up to the pic of their Mum ! I saw their mum today, she has rejoined her mate and seems none the worse for her loss. It's good to see all the ducks safely on the lower river, this being the shooting season they can legally be shot, even Mothers with late young, how cruel and inhumane is that !
