A pair of Mallards have been visiting our garden during the past week and as I went out of our front door early this morning imagine my surprise at finding the female sitting in our sink garden and on closer inspection sitting on an egg! She was shuffling about rather nervously as I believe she had only just 'produced'...the male was looking on excitedly!

A Ringed Plover objected to my presence and stalked off on my aproach.
