Ducklings on Blairmount Pond

Very early September and there's some late summer arrivals on Blairmount Pond.
They've settled by the pond dipping platform.

I took the photos and videos yesterday Tuesday the 3rd of September. I had to chase a cat stalking in the banks long grass.
This Wednesday evening all seven are surviving and are voracious eaters.
They'll soon get fat with the folk around here feeding them.
I hope they survive


  1. Absolutely gorgeous and delightful! I love this! Thank you so much for sharing. As far as the video I posted yesterday on my blog, it WAS the Just for Laughs Gags. Just for Laughs are a group that work here in Montreal, and they are sensational.

  2. Very cute indeed. Not an ugly duckling amongst them.

  3. Beautifully captured Jim, and they are utterly, utterly charming. :)

  4. It sure seems late in the season for those little ones.
    Nice captures Jim, have a great weekend. : )

  5. Hopefully it will stay warm through autumn and will not be too hard a winter for them. Fingers crossed.
    Most of my pond tadpoles and small frogs will probably end up inside ducks:)

  6. A very nice set of pictures of such a late brood.

  7. Thanks for all your comments folks, they really are appreciated and I know I'm lax in replying.
    Though I don't always comment, I do catch up on your blog posts.


Thanks for all your comments. I may not get to reply to them all, but you may be sure they'll be appreciated.
