Mad Mallard

Tuesday 5 June 2012
An interesting experience during one of my regular Ewelme visits!  Whilst crossing the wooden bridge a female mallard with three young decided it didn't like the look of me and proceded to fly towards my legs squaking as it came.  It veered off when about a foot away and circled round me several times at about that distance. Normally they just run away so I'm not too sure what came over this one?

Usual birds but good to see a Hobby flypast. Strange that the Grey Wagtails left with the drought and have not re-appeared as yet.

  1. Probably not that strange that the grey wagtails have not returned. They've almost certainly found somewhere to their liking and are rearing a brood there.
