Hooray for baby waterfowl

Yay! The babies are back! People don’t understand my obsession with ducks ad swans and geese and things but I think they’re awesome. I feel sorry for Andy, as whenever we walk through Jephson Gardens I always ask if I can go and look at the ducks. He always says yes and waits patiently, but doesn’t understand my love for them. Beckie also asked why I love them so much, but I don’t know why!

Anyway, baby waterfowl update;
4 cygnets
9 ducklings

Better duck turnout this year, but there were 6 cygnets last year! Poor effort from the swan population I feel.

  1. They ARE awesome. I always stop and stare at the baby factors for loads of time.

  2. Yay! someone who shares my passion!! I spent 15mins watching those cygnets a few days ago :D

    And I saw baby coots – they're black fluff balls who squeak the whole time!!!

  4. maybe there's a male/female split here, cos I go gooey over ducklings, and tom thinks i'm weird.

  5. People think I'm weird anyway, so they don't pay too much attention to whether I like ducklings or not. I saw nine of them on the Cryfield pond.

    I think I'm going to get a barrage of compaint–y type things from this, but here goes…

    Caroline/Anna/Michael, I think there is a split. I don't understand Zo's obsession with baby things at all! 15 minutes watching cygnets seems a bit excessive to me. Could someone explain to me how there is enough distinct behaviour in baby animals over a 15 minute period to be that engaging? :)

    And baby coots just sound annoying :p :)
