30 Days Wild - look out for the youngsters!

This is the time of year when the young birds are around - here's a mute swan family on Inverleith Pond

and over on the Botanic Gardens pond, a moorhen feeds one of its chicks

while the mallard family seems to only have one duckling left (it had five or more last time we were in the Botanics)

and for total unexpectedness, the surprise of several damselflies by the side of Inverleith Pond (I think they were common blue damselflies, if you disagree, let me know in the comments section).

Thanks Crafty Green Boyfriend for the photos in this post (other than the photo of the swans, which I took);

What a lovely post.
I enlarged all of the photographs and the moorhen feeding her chick is just marvellous!

All the best Jan
