They were down by the Castle Lock today, and close to the other side of the bank, so I was able to get some nicer photos.
The babies are very good at being in formation, it must be said.
Meanwhile, back at the nest, there’s a female mallard duck that is trying to turn it into her nest.
The coots do keep coming back and reclaiming their property, though. I suppose with all the work they put into that nest, a duck squatting is just too much to handle.
