Duck update

Duck updateIt's been a while since blogging about the ducks and their ducklings

As I mentioned, the duck which nested on my deck had seven ducklings, but they all disappeared.

Fairly recently, she re-appeared with another large brood.

She does appear to be rather a careless mother though as, a few weeks later, she is now down to only two chicks.

That same duck and another one, with five chicks, regularly stay overnight on the platform. The picture shows the other mother and her five offspring.

I note that the ducklings are kept well away from the rest of the Fareham duck posse.


  1. lol, that posse looks like it's up to no good :D

  2. Just back from a night out I'd say.
