Summer Ducklings!

By johnboy - 24 January 2011 5


The ducks have taken to the Banksia Street wetland (in the bit of O’Connor most people think of as Lyneham) so well they’ve decided to have vast numbers of ducklings late in summer.

I almost ran over this lot on Friday evening toddling to The Front.

Dad looks like he’s had enough and is stalking off to the pub.

Yeah, I had the adults hiss at me and rush towards me as I was whizzing past on my bike a while ago. When I got off and walked alongside my bike towards them instead (surely less scary than me on it, at speed?) they went “oh s***” and ran away.

Ducks are weird.

Stay well clear of that variety of duck when they’ve got babbies – the daddy will go for your ankles when you try & sidle past on the old treadly. Bloomin’ scary.
