The nest site by Guildford’s Town bridge. How many ducklings can you count in the film clip?

Reader James Dix was on his way to work on Friday morning (April 17) and noticed this rather cute sight in the town centre

He says: “The semi-famous duck that lives in the old post in the river by the Town Bridge next to Debenhams has had ducklings. (Despite the cans and broken glass!)  It was drawing a lot of attention from passers by at lunch time.

Thanks to our regular birdwatching correspondent Malcolm Fincham who uploaded the clip on to You Tube for us here at the Guildford Dragon NEWS.
