Didn't get a good look at Mom with 9 chicks the other day at Marsh Lane but I'm hoping she is a Shoveler.

This morning I decided to check out some of my local spots.Went over first to the NT property at Baddesley Clinton to see if the Spotted Flycatchers were still about.The chicks  must have fledged because none were showing.Did see a Grey Wagtail alongside the moat though.

Then I spotted something a bit gruesome on the garden side of the moat.I thought Mallards were vegetarians so I was very surprised to see this female trying to eat what I first though was a frog but is in fact a bird.

Went to three other of my local spots but drew a blank at all of them and never saw a bird at any of them.
