To go into town from our house we have 2 alternate routes.  One is a busy road and the other is a back road.  This photo was taken on the back road about a week ago.  So cute.  Are there 14 or 15 ducklings?  They were with their mum crossing the road to visit a dam.    Poor mum, what a handful wingful.  This is taken through the windscreen of the car and on high zoom, so sorry about the quality.

ducklings

My dh has seen them since then and was sad to report there were only 6 remaining.  😦 We think by the evidence that a car had hit them.  😥

Even though it is a narrow road cars speed along.

Spring has sprung but the weather is still very changeable so I hope the remaining ducklings survive.

Bye for now,

lorrai
