Arctic Blast

Penny and Duke were forced to get the heads down today as unseasonal weather hit the riverside. 

Strong winds from the north brought an icy blast and hailstones from the Arctic, and the forecast is for more tomorrow. As I have previously mentioned, survival of newly hatched ducklings depends very much on the weather and food supply, Today I spotted a newly hatched brood of 11  very tiny ducklings, hoping they survive this wintry spell.
