Author's notes

number just for out front of the hide did not come out in the open much mainly hiding in the grassy areas or behind the reeds, the ducklings were spread out most of the time. First time we have seen Hardhead ducklings, very cute.

Nice one, don't think I've seen Hardhead ducklings before.
