On looking over the parapet of Glendine Bridge, I was greeted with this sight.
There are about 200 Mallard in the photo and they were part of a much larger flock that I estimated to number at least 1000.
All were waddling along this woodland path very intent on reaching their destination. I have no idea where they came from or where they were going.
Why they chose to walk rather then fly is another little mystery.
