Come in....No. 6!

 Caught Mrs Mallard on the 'nest' this morning in the sink showing no concern as I went in and out of our front door only a couple of feet away.

 At 10 past 7 she pushed off and there it was..................number six!
Mallards can have double this number so it could be interesting.
 Following yesterdays early morning  arrival she did not show up all day.

(I apologise to my blog followers for what may seem a rather boring daily bulletin but I think this bird  is in a sufficiently unusual location to warrant  continuing until a conclusion)

There had been a 'fall' of Willow Warblers overnight and several were singing around the Lagoon and
in the bushes leading to to the Spit Hide.
 All feeding frantically and difficult to capture!

The numbers of waders and ducks have dropped dramatically on the mudflats with just a few Oystercatchers and Curlew within camera distance...just!
Curlew feeding


Plenty of young bunnies though!
