Summer saturday stroll

We took a late afternoon walk at Battle Hill today.

These photos are from the Ponds Walk, an area of wetlands regeneration. Can you spot Mr and Mrs Paradise Duck in the first photo below? They had raised 4 healthy looking young ‘uns.

      They were excellent parents. As we rounded the pond and came closer the mother sounded the alert and Dad and the teens all went out to the middle of the pond to safety. She joined them when her cries did not send us on our way immediately. We praised their efforts very quietly. The batteries had died in my camera so no images of the ducks up close:-(
