Just ducky

I've been enjoying some lovely walks down by the canal in recent days and I've started to make friends with the various duck families down there.

There is this family with really teeny, tiny ducklings.


Then there are these ducklings who are a bit older.


I'm a bit worried about these ducks as they seem to have forgotten where the water is...


But the very favourite duck family of me and the Lady Of The House is this little family of three. We think their mum must have adopted them because they don't look anything like each other, do they? But they are always together and seem very happy.

The last little duck family is adorable. Lucky little ducky mother to adopt two cute little babies.

Ducklings are so cute. Song takes no notice and has even had some walk underneath her:)

When you start seeing all the new baby animals, you know that spring is in the air.

Aw, those duck families are cute! I do love the yellow duck family (the ones who can't find the water)...my aunt has those around her pool and I play with them every time I am there!

Happy weekend!

We LOVE the duck families! There are usually some every year at the ponds on the golf course down the street from us. They are so fun to watch! (and chase - if Mom & Dad would just let us!)

Adopted Mummies are the best!
Those ducklings don't look like their Mom and they don't look like each other either! What a very special little family!

They are very cute - do you really think they are an adopted family? I can see why they are your favorites!

Aww! Those ducks are so sweet! It's very nice of that mother duck to take in an orphan.

They may be cross breed ducklings... crossed duckies look a lot like cross bred puppies - different looking pups in the litter :)

Hey Winnie!
Wow, what cute duckies! I'd have to work really hard to avoid bashing them. I agree that the set of three look like an adoption story. Very sweet! Great place to go for walkies.
Grr and Woof,

You need to take some tape with you next time! I hear there is this thing called 'duck tape' that you could use on them!

Hi Winnie the Wonderful

It is raining here in Derby and my hooman said it 's raining 'cats and dogs' but surely it should be 'swans and ducks'?

Hoomans say stoopid things!

Woofs and licks
Hector, Bonny and Lucy too!

Birds are always fascinating to watch. Canada geese have many of the same habits as ducks. What I love is the way they go about their bird business, paying no attention whatever to the humans nearby. We do not count unless we're bringing food. Then it's really the food that counts, of course, not us.
