Mallards - a family of a mother and some of her ducklings

You will find these at

Normally I would not put up a sequence like this but would select one or, possibly, two which I considered to be the ones worth looking at. Although this is only about half the photographs that I took of this young family on Oare Water (made famous by Lorna Doone), I think it giives some idea of what was happening. Anyway, I hope you enjoy what you see.

Regarding one robin

This is not really a post at all in the usual sense. I took some video of a robin in the garden - see below - and wanted an expert opinion as to why it was behaving as it was and so on. Now my brother-in-law is just such an expert so I sent him an email with this clip as an attachment - only to discover that he was unable to open it.

So, yes you've guessed, I decided to attach it to a post here and just send him the link. Anyone else who has an opinion is more than welcome to pop their comments below.
