New family in the sun

Mother duck brought her ducklings out of the nest this morning for a breath of fresh air and a glimpse of the sun. They all dined on crushed cornflakes, rich tea biscuit, brown bread and cream cracker soaked in water and then lazed about for quite a while. The ducklings were trying to preen themselves and couldn't quite manage to stand on one leg for more than a second or two, so there was lots of tumbling over and bruised pride!

Not my best photo I admit, but didn't want to get too near as mum is still a bit hissy and I don't want to panic her unnecessarily.
