Mother duck shows spring is here

Mother duck

Mother duck and her brood

Driving over the dam spillway this morning, I gave mother duck and her brood the fright of their lives and had to leap off the UTV very fast to snap their photo! In the last week or so, we’ve seen quite a lot of waterbird chicks on or near the water and it gives me a real thrill to see them thriving on the farm.

We live close to the sea and are proud to offer this protected nesting site.
