      Glad you enjoyed the photograph. I’m going to try to get to the Swannery near where I live this week as the baby swans are hatching. I will post some photographs if I get there. Not as cute as ducklings if Danny Kaye is to be believed….

    Do you know if those are mallards or black ducks?

    Cygnets may not be a cute as ducklings, but not nearly as revolting as baby (or adult) vultures or condors. ;D

    • She wasn’t taking any chances!
      Yes, I do believe they are mallards, not sure if we have black ducks…my favourites are mandarin ducks – gorgeous things.
      I’ve never seen a baby vulture or a condor for that matter Will have to resort to Google to see what they look like…

    • Oh bless! That is one ugly little chap. Didn’t spot the explanation about the puppet at first and wondered about the parent bird too… 🙂
