September Brood

UPDATE: I can confirm this is the brood from the Rectory. The other 2 ducklings were attacked by a cat on Saturday, killing one and injuring the other. The Mother has wisely decided to bring them to the river now.
New Brood of nine has turned up in the river today. I suspect they are from from the Rectory where there was 11 a week ago. 

They are around 3 weeks old. Conditions are not ideal, with the river in spate and cool temperatures. 

However they seem healthy and robust, so hopefully some will survive although late in the season.

That's our wee guys! Fingers crossed for them. It's been a pleasure watching them grow, if a bit stressful!
