It's all very well people going "Oh, so cute" and "Aaah!" but what I want to know is where are Health & Safety? This hazard should have been cordoned off and signed to prevent exactly this kind of incident. Think of the paperwork this near-tragic accident will cause! Enquiries, hearings, witness interviews....oh dear, oh dear.Sad Someone's head will roll over this, you mark my words.
Very well done, Barbara, for obtaining photgraphic evidence that can be presented to any forthcoming enquiry.

Good set of images Barbara. Lovely little story with a happy ending.

I do like V1, itís grate. Grin

Now this is superb photojournalism, Barbara. So happy that Mother Duck got her family together. Those 4 would have got a good scolding later on, though!
