Watery Wednesday.

I didn't see much today ... overcast skies followed by the inevitable drizzle ... so a couple of images from last week.
 Mrs Tufted keeping a very close watch on her new babies.

From memory this is the first time I have seen young Tufties on my local patch ... just hope they stay clear of any predators.   FAB.

  2. I have had an explosion of babies on my property and I worry about them, too! I'm glad I was out watching the Tree Swallow houses yesterday to see the babies emerge, because 2 of the 3 houses are already vacant. There's just one lonely Tree Swallow left flying over the meadow and darting in and out of one of the houses. I was reading a book about Harlequin Ducks this past winter and was surprised to learn that fish eat ducklings, too! Doesn't that beat all? It's one thing to worry about the surrounding air space! ~karen

  12. I think most of the UK is stuck with that weather at the moment Frank. Tufted Duck chicks aren't a common sight here either. Great photos.

  13. What a cute little fuzz ball. Amazing photos! It has been too hot around here to get out and look for photo ops. Since July is hotter than normal, I'm hoping August will be cooler than normal.
