The water is still very low at low tide after a long hot Summer. Mallards and ducklings swim in the remaining flow, others climb on to islands of stones in the river. A seagull chick on the opposite bank watches the ducks. His parents are higher up, keeping an eye on their offspring. The goosander, who normally likes her own space, joins the others when swans return.
