Walking through the park last night, we noticed another brood of ducklings.
These were different to the rest we’ve seen, most of which have sadly disappeared again, and it wasn’t clear exactly what they were.
We have mallards, tufted ducks and moorhens, which are related to but different from coots as well as the Canada geese and greylags.
I’ve taken these pictures from the internet for comparison
Hubby took this picture which I cropped to show a better view of the adult and one chick.
The baby in the water looks a little like a moorhen chick, but the adult and other ducklings are the wrong colour. Hopefully we’ll see these babies grow up and find out a little more.
Still cute though don’t you think?
