It’s been storming quite a lot, with gale winds.  Which means there’s a lot of leaves and branches in the canal.

Which is great for the babies, because it means nice branches to nibble leaves off of.

What I like seeing is that they’re growing up, but because there’s just the tiniest bit of difference in their ages, they have different rates of growth.  Like these two:

But they’re definitely growing up.  Soon they’ll leave, and I won’t get to take pictures of them any more.

But wait – what’s this?

Could new babies be on the way?
