Two tribes

Presumably at some point during the weekend, a second brood of ducklings has hatched, so we now have two collections of adorable chicks competing for the negligible resources of the quad. Or not so negligible as it happens, since someone is feeding them in direct contravention of the human-Anatidae rules of engagement. Anyway, for now all looks well in the quad, but with ~30 ducklings in there all aiming at adult size, it's going to get ugly before long.

In passing, while there's no sign of any chicks yet, our roosting seagulls appear to have returned. And seem to be spending a lot of time here judging from the accumulation of guano.
