Nature at its best lots of ducklings, this Mallard family learning to dabble with mum. Avocets catching food in the shallows. Their chicks have grown in the last couple of weeks. Harmony on the water. A lovely scene.
Both families move further away and closer together. When one of the Avocets gets too close to the ducklings.
Then it kicks off mother Mallard is not having this, and gives the warning to keep away from her youngsters but it is not heard.
The confrontation ends in a scrap and the Avocet is sent packing.
