Mid-winter Ducklings take a Break.

June 25, 2017

A delightful surprise awaited me as I walked along the roadside to the beach, this weekend.

A mother duck and 8 ducklings were resting on a grass verge at the side of the road.

The little ducklings were grouped closely together having a compulsory, communal, rest time.

Mother duck was taking a break in the winter sunshine, a short distance away from her brood.

Oops! The ducklings we’re alert and stood up ready for a quick getaway when they heard the sound of my footsteps. Little cuties!!!
