  Mr and Mrs Duck?

This is hardly a serious danger however you might get a bit of a fright if you are unaware. Have you ever noticed what good parents wild ducks are? I was closely watching two families just recently. One was at the local gardens and the other at the Community Village (where most of the U3A classes are held). At least 8 ducklings were involved in each family and I watched as an unsuspecting visitor to the village approached the ducklings to give one a pat only to be honked, and rushed at with beak a flapping. She jumped back, could have fallen over but didn't thank goodness........no, she didn't get her pat.

At the gardens the other day I was creeping up on this family to try and get some close up shots.............guess what? Poppa is here eyeing me off and I guess daring me to come closer..............I didn't. LOL.
