This duck was waiting patiently below the birdfeeder, knowing that some seeds would find their way to the grass whenever another bird was feeding above him.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

The cygnets are now six week old and growing fast. The warm weather has helped them find plenty of food in the river.
