There were the resident mallards but there were no females think they will all be sitting on eggs or tending to ducklings hidden away somewhere.
Also a few Moorhens scuttling about.

When I got back home I had a nice surprise my first swallow of the year was back at the farm. Expect it will soon be joined by its mates and they'll be repairing their nests ready to start breeding they had an excellent year last summer.

I really enjoyed my few hours out and it was nice to see and photograph a couple of different species but I do love it on the farm.
