Cute Ducklings

The September brood are coping with the new river environment in spite of the recent spate conditions. 

Was a bit worried when I didn't see them yesterday, but today mother duck turned up at feeding time with all 9 ducklings.
They were eating like ravenous piranhas with the drop in temperature and high water.

 After stuffing their necks with Mealworm, porridge oats, and mixed bird seeds, they settled down for a nap. 
At first on the recently created shingle bed in the middle of the river, then under the bridge.

Short movie clip below, drink after the feed .
