Ducklings leave their nest

7/7/2015 The duck who has been sitting on 10 eggs under a bush outside the kitchen window started making little noises this morning. For a moment I wondered why…

and then remembered it was the noise they made when chatting to their ducklings. I stopped and listened more closely… and heard the little cheeping noises that told me they’d hatched! Only one egg didn’t hatch. Mummy duck made them work hard on their first outing from the nest as she wanted to get up some steps to eat the food I’d put out for her!
