A gang of Mallards

A dozen shy young mallards (mostly female) have just arrived by the pond. I might get a better shot if they’re still here tomorrow, but I don’t want to disturb them.

The next morning and they’re still here, doing what ducks do: eating the pond plants and messing up the water!

Update 20 July. The mallards have gone, back to their pond next door where they had escaped from!
