Easter Eggs

Disco the disabled duck has finally begun to incubate her eggs .....all 16 of them !!!!

Had the chance to inspect the nest when she came off briefly for a wash and bite to eat this morning.
She is quite a Madam and enjoying life to the full, all being well we should see some ducklings in a months time.
She will rear them in as natural a state as possible until they are safe enough to be transferred to the river when about 9 weeks old.

The six she had last season were successfully integrated into the river population at that age.
