Last Supper - Before Release

The Last brood of ducklings under the care of the River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust, will be released tomorrow. The mother and 10 ducklings had their last supper this evening, consisting of lettuce, thawed garden peas, mixed bird seed and mealworm. They are in tip top condition and almost ready for flight.

Getting fed at regular times often means they are waiting  in anticipation, as the photos show ! 

This takes this seasons total up to 62 saved ducklings that the Crows didn't get. It has been a long hard messy 6 month slog for me, but I get a lot of joy seeing them happy in their river element.
