Feeding the ducks

Some of the regulars with the ducks. There was a bit of a disaster yesterday when a West Highland Terrier bit a young duck, it didn’t last the rest of the day and the champion pair that started with 17 young ones only have 13 now. 13 however is a great success compared with some other broods and the young ones are a good size now.
Earlier in the summer the swans lost a young one too, it took ill and very quickly declined but with six remaining, they too have an above average number of young.
With the ducks and the swans and the salmon to watch in the water this part of the river is becoming very popular with locals and visitors alike.
