..... Ducks are present in greater numbers this May than in previous years, these Ducks are designed for upending and filter feeding sieving the water for invertebrates.
There is something ungainly about Shovelers but I do quite like them.
They are pretty feisty and protect their territories with passion with the Drakes chasing off competition with verve and energy.
I do hope that they will breed successfully in the Peter Scott pit, they certainly seem to be going through the motions.
