Ducklings Feeding

26/4/2020 – The Atlantic Pond, Cork City

The sound of a mother duck bringing her nine ducklings to feed in a puddle on the edge of the pond. I’d seen them use this puddle the previous day, so early in the morning I left my microphone there and waited for them to come along. Their cheeps, wing splashes, beak snaps and bloops, and the sounds the mother uses to talk to her chicks are all amazing. While they were feeding two hooded crows flew over (to try and catch a duckling for breakfast). Mother duck chased them away, and you can hear me running across to scare the crows too.
