The first Spring ducklings have hatched!

How do we know that Spring is on its way? The evenings are starting to draw out, the sun has a gentle warmth about it and the skies are looking bigger and bluer than in February …….. and, the first of our Mallard ducklings have hatched!

I snapped these images earlier this morning of Mother Mallard with her tiny two-some. They’re quite timid and camera-shy so I didn’t stay around them for too long – just long enough to capture and share the excitement of new life with our Blog-followers!
