Family Of Mallard Chicks

The photograph of a female Mallard and her young taken at Stanley Park has brought me great joy. I live next to the River Bourne in South Wiltshire but thanks to an unthinking parish council and residents who care little about the environment and preserving wildlife habitat, young Mallards are becoming a thing of the past in this area. Too many planning applications are allowed which permit the destruction of wildife habitat near rivers and the opening up of woodland areas alongside rivers in which the public exercise their dogs, only leads to wildlife being driven out of our villages. What a sad day it will be when there are no longer any ducks for grandparents to take their grandchildren to feed!
