You will miss them Jane but as you say they had a good start , you gave them peace and quiet the safe haven they needed at the time .. I have a feeling mum will be back another year to visit you again ... my three male ducks were sitting on our roof a while ago ! .. .
Have a nice weekend x

We get a pair of mallards every year, but they nest round the bend of the stream just out of view - sensible birds! We sometimes see the babies. I think they've upped and left now, though. No chance of photos! :-((

They are so secretive Spritz...they have to be.......
