Although they were close to the edge of the canal, my phone didn’t focus properly, so I ended up with a lot of photos of blurred balls of fluff.

But the adults photograph well.

The babies were swimming around, but one kept hanging around the nest.  I figure maybe to stop that duck from taking the nest over.

So instead the duck hung out on the bank. She’s very friendly and quite happy to hang out with us. And if you’re standing, she’ll go sit in the shade you’re creating.

You sit there, duck. You do that.
