Sat on the bank of the River Severn in Shropshire I noticed two adult ducks, one male and one female, coming towards me followed rather slowly by 7 ducklings. I obviously don’t know if this was the first time these little ducklings had been in the river but they were all seemingly very nervous about this. I took half a dozen snaps as they moved slowly in the water, but I favoured this one as they are all near enough in a line. I think the mother duck was looking towards the father for moral support. Needless to say they all took to the water quite quickly in the end.
