Water bird chicks gallery
Who doesn't love fluffy young chicks? Not us, that's for sure. Now, we know that nature is 'red in tooth and claw' but as Spring gets going we've indulged in some unapologetic celebration of ducklings, goslings and cygnets.
But here's a selection from the gallery:
First up is this inquisitive duckling from prolific photographer Ashley Cohen, aka WalesBirder. You can see the original on Flickr here.
Here's a great pic of a swan with its cygnets from Mark Riley, aka master47. You can see the original on Flickr here.
And what's better than this little gosling from John Bennett? You can see the original on Flickr here.
