Remember me telling you both the dark coloured Swedish Ducks were males? Well they're not! At least one is female and she has new babies. Which makes me wonder if she, not a mallard, is mother to the early brood. Certainly the timing would be right - but that mallard coloured duckling has me wondering.
But - here are the newbies - only a couple of days old by my reckoning.
