Author's notes

Ducks nesting in a bird box! Been observed for at least a week. Ducks have been nesting continuously in this small area for the last 20-25 years - they struggle to get to water - mother ducks plus entourage have sometimes have rescued and transported to the lake! Why do they nest so far from water?
