A Mallard nested under the ivy in my garden again this year. Yesterday she emerged with 14 ducklings which we had to round up, place in a box and then walk Mum over to the pond on the nearby park and release them. Quite comical as we had to stop the traffic on the main road and encourage Mum to follow the box of cheeping ducklings over the road. Good luck little guys.
Picture taken halfway through round up.
