Is that mum?

No, it most certainly isn’t, but a whole flotilla of ducklings seem confused.


It’s the early 1980s and my son, aged about 4, is playing with his toy yacht. It did sail and blow in the wind, but we adults insisted on a line back to land being held, just in case of a capsize. I’m afraid the location has gone unrecorded on the slide – parents will know how short of time you are with two little children to cope with but I think it is a millpond at Swanage.

The ducklings seem to have abandoned mum – surely not all hers – and are following the toy yacht.

I guess it is the natural curiosity of the young.
