This Mallard is just taking the family of newly hatched ducklings to the garden pond for a swim.

So lovely to see, very nice Brian. I have a pair that spend most of the day in the garden, they've been here about 3 years, never any young, but I've no pond, but am near lakes so I assume she has her young near there.
Kind regards
Susan

Thank you Lydia for your lovely comment. Lots of activity in the garden at the moment, several nesting birds including ducks as usual. They always bring a huge smile to us. The mums are so protective over them its great to watch. I am sure the mums can count as she waits until the last duckling is with the rest before walking on.
Kind regards Brian
