Disco's Babes Fostered Out

                         I am currently laid low with a vicious viral chest infection, have never been this ill since the pneumonia scare a few years back. 

The ducklings under my care are a bit much so had to foster out Disco's ducklings now over a month old, to Inspector Aileen Ross of the SPCA. She will care for them until fledged and we can release them back to the river then. Meanwhile Disco is now in sole charge of the remaining rescued ones, badly in need of some motherly guidance. Up until now have been unable to allow them to join the others, so now Disco can act as surrogate mother for the next 5 weeks until old enough to release. Short vid below.

Thanks Jock, still as weak as a kitten and missing seeing the Swans.
Heard there was a big flood during the week, probably changed all the riverbed
again ?
