A Sure Sign Of Spring!

Walking around my ‘other’ local lake today i disturbed this family of Australasian Wood Ducks (Chenonetta jubata) resting in shallow water near to the bank.

Being protective parents they took their brood of ducklings out into deeper water.

Spring might not technically be here yet but it certainly cannot be far away. 😉
