It is very late in the season for new babies but the wild ducks have a new clutch of ducklings. There was another group but they seem to have disappeared and I saw a python in this tidal creek so I wonder if they survived. This mother is very careful with her brood. It is hard to see them and they are all very obedient when it comes to following mothers instructions.
She has six little ducklings to look after.It's a bit hard to see them in the gloom.
I also found a headless turtle on the beach. I'm not sure if it was a shark or the propeller of a boat. There were no cut marks on the shell so I suspect a shark. There are a number of large loggerhead turtles swimming around the island at the moment. You see them raise their flipper out of the water and just get a glimpse of their shell.
I keep saying that I will go fishing but I never get there. I have to take Bill to the Doctor every 2nd day and that sees me pushing the wheel chair down to the ferry and repeating the process on the mainland. All that worrying about driving on the barge when he wants to travel on the ferry!
