Ugly ducklings and Mallard babes on the Oxford Canal
A family of mute swans
The juveniles are almost full grown but still with the brownish-grey feathers.
They will gradually become whiter and will leave their parents territory in a few weeks time.
This mallard mum's certainly got her 'feet' full with such a large large brood
It's unusual to see such young ducklings at this time of year - and usually happens when the first clutch is destroyed.
The Oxford Canal Walk
Fancy a totally relaxing and contemplative break with a bit of gentle exercise on the side? Then the Oxford Canal Walk is well worth considering.
This trail runs between the cathedral cities of Coventry and Oxford, through the peaceful Warwickshire and North Oxfordshire countryside and the market town of Banbury. It follows the canal for 77 miles and the flat towpath is easy walking, in fact the only climbing done is by the canal boats passing through the locks!

Canal boats, a riot of colour
