There are many collective nouns for a group of ducks, but I think I like a paddle of ducklings - because that's exactly what they do, other than waddle!!! These guys are currently living in my garden, and their mum trusts me enough to let them get quite close to me. In return I'm trying to teach the dog that ducks are not just for eating! So far so good and mum has managed to keep all 8 alive and healthy which is pretty impressive as there are kestrels, buzzards, crows, magpies and jays around here that share the dog's opinion!

Thank you so much to everyone who left lovely comments on my last upload and especially for any UAs awarded.

I like the way you have taken this.....down low and with selective focus as they waddle towards you.
