River Plym at Saltram

While I was completing my WEBS survey today at 12.00 I was delighted to see a Mallard duck and her ten ducklings swimming down the river just down from the railway bridge, less happy to see the duck being harried by three Mallard drakes so that she had to take flight and leave the ducklings to fend for themselves until the drakes gave up the chase!
