Portinfer Sea Ducks
Mr Bee took the Bumble Bee'rs and Grandad for a walk on Portinfer Beach. As they were walking towards the beach he spotted a harrier hovering directly overhead.
This is what the bird of prey had his eye on; a mother duck and her thirteen little ducklings hot-footing it across the sand.
I hope none of them was the unlucky number thirteen and ended up the harrier's lunch!
It must be hard work for those tiny webbed feet to scramble over the rocks on the beach, not to mention hard work having thirteen little ones to keep watch over - and I thought I was busy :)
