Our Eyton Tree Duck female has been sitting tight on her brood of eggs for the last few weeks. Here she is with her carefully constructed nest, cleverly hidden amongst the grass and bushes.
The eggs have successfully hatched and she is now the proud new mum to six tiny ducklings.
Both parents are very protective, here is an image captured of them earlier having their first swimming lesson with mum and dad. Just look how cute they are! A beautiful brood for beautiful parents.
