      I guess we all love fluffy ducklings as they have such beautiful features;   I'd have taken the lot home with me including the confiding parents given half a chance   lol        These Eiders are used to people feeding them on the jetty ramp and I was able to sit on the ground surrounded by the adults and all their chicks !

    Oh my goodness, how lovely to see the new tit members;  although our boxes seem inactive now I haven't seen any young yet even though I thought I heard fledglings in the distance so fingers crossed they appear I the garden like yours.    They are great pics through the window.
