Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Line-up

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Line-up.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of this photo.

A female Common Merganser with a line of young behind her.

Ducks in a row.

Thanks Hannah. Brood numbers can vary quite a bit but I also seem to recall reading that the Mergansers will adopt other broods so it’s possible that there are two broods there.

What a lovely line-up. I’ve concluded that ducks have so many youngsters because they lose such a lot to predators!

Each year I notice a mother and her brood doing a twice daily walk across our fields, every few days the numbers get less and less!

Thanks Sue. I suspect that could be the case. I have seen a young Great Crested Grebe taken by a Pike so if there are Pike in the water they’ll be taking anything.
