Wildlife Watch: Watermead

Have your say

Tadpoles and fuzzy new ducks enjoying their starts to life at Watermead in Aylesbury.

Some footage from one of Aylesbury’s key wildlife habitats on Watermead where tadpoles can be seen in their thousands and new ducks and cygnets have just recently come into the world.

A mother duck shows her protective side by chasing off some other ducks before eventually leading her young over to the bank to feed on some bread being thrown in by walkers.

A sad sight on the lake was a dead heron as well as a number ducks, one of which was killed by other ducks in the days before.
