It's not just us and our Guests that love the Spring here at Mullion Barn, its the Mallard ducks too!
The recent warm weather has meant lots of the cutest ducklings hatching out and male ducks fighting over the females.. oh yes its all happening in the duck world in Springtime!
The ducks often sit on their eggs and let them hatch across the road in the Moat, and then they (treacherously!!) cross the road and visit the pond at Mullion Barn. Sometimes they don't all make it, mum can start out with more than 10 tiny ducklings and end up with just a couple a month later. The countryside can be a cruel place for such a small duckling!
