I hope the chickens and swan are okay, that’s very worrisome. I’m sure all those other critters were happy to have you back! :heart:

At about 5 minutes into the video, the mummy duck and all the ducklings were in the middle of the pond. As I stopped filming and lowered my camera, the seagull swooped down at one of the ducklings. That´s why the jump cut shows all 5 together right next to mum.
I have bought some food for them today, I´ll go back tomorrow :)

Beautiful little duck family. :xflove: :heart2:

Good luck to them, those seagulls seem on a mission. Though she seems to be a very protective mum!

Some updates,

Bad news,
I walked all over the park today for hours, I did not find Mr Guinea fowl.
I did not see any peacocks or any of the big ducks (mute ducks).
The pair of swans that are normally on the big pond are gone.

Good news,
The lone Swan is down on the big pond.
I saw a lot more chickens today but still no where near the norm.
There has been an influx of ducks down near the big pond.
There were also a lot of terrapins in the water.
(I say down, because the big pond is down hill)
Here is the lone swan enjoying his home upgrade,

[Trigger warning - sad]
Super sad news,
There were only three ducklings on the pond.

I forgot to say earlier,

Here are the chicken coups, they were built about 2 years ago now,

Three of these cages were closed and there was a handful of chickens in each one :( I don´t know why. The path in front of them was cordened off, but I jumped over to go take a look.
As I walked away, security came walking up the path and I stopped him to ask why they were caged. He says he didn´t know, maybe for quarantine or to have chicks..... :think1: Weird. They were all looking at me so helplessly through the chicken wire :sad3:

Is that the same pigeon as the one on your arm in the first post of this thread?
Oooooh good eye! They look to be the same mutation (?) but I think the one today had darker black feathers... , but who knows! Maybe! :)

These are not from Zara's happy place, but they are too cute to not share on a thread with other little babies. ...I am just gushing over them..and mum rips up grub with her foot/beak. So amazing and I am in love with the whole family. :xflove:

P.s. not my insta, but found on there

I went to the park yesterday.
I looked in all the bushes and could not find the larger ducks. Not even one. Most had angel wing.

Still just one swan there. Saw a rabbit. Lots more normal ducks, and also a good amount of new (chicken) chicks.
The chickens I spoke of that were locked away, are still locked away!

Anyway, some videos;
(remember to click the cog and put the vids in HD)

It is interesting to see the chickens because they seem to stay as families. I see the parents and the chicks together. You can´t tell as much when there´s a lot of birds, but I saw a family alone in the cactus garden. It´s cute :)

Just a still picture here
Yea that´s what happened to me... I am reuploading.
This is the first time I have been back since the ducklings, I couldn´t face going back and counting less ducklings.
