Mallard flock roosting at twilight.

Those little fluffy ducks are almost full grown now. Here they are on their evening march from the stream up to the big pond to roost overnight. They don’t look like Mum and 8 x Babies anymore – more of a mini flock of 9 ducks…they still follow her dutifully wherever she leads though!  The main pic shows Mum keeping an eye on me while the ducklings sit motionless amongst the bullrushes as twilight descends.JA6_9873JA6_9866
