Ducks in the Park

We have a tufted duck that has arrived in the park.

More importantly it has 9 babies. This is very clever of it as it only arrived a week or so ago on its own with no drake ( which look a bit like Magpie but with a tuft on a duck's head.)

Sadly, I can't find any photos of ducklings, but they are rather like little round black balls that spend all their time popping underwater and then reappearing elsewhere.Mrs. Lear tried to film them on her phonw - which mostly consisted of her telling them what to do ( " Stay still.. Come here!")

Which had no effect as they joyously dived and popped up again.
