What a big family!!!

I saw them last week - perhaps a day or so old, a family of ducks - including about 15 ducklings.  I must say it is a large family - we don't often see such a large number of offspring, but clearly they are the same family and they live in bushland, in Manly West.

They venture out onto the grassy area from time to time with the parents on guard.  I have seen the parents on their own, though I guess that the ducklings are sleeping in the bush nearby as the parents would not leave them unatetnded.

They are growing very quickly.
