Here on the canal at Walsall Wood on my way to work, two males were competitively battling each other to mate with a female.
They were fighting for some time and the noise and disruption was considerable. Interesting that a coot seemed to be refereeing.
We are now under some kind of lockdown – I can only got to work if I can’t from home, or if I am a ‘key worker’; I can have some exercise every day and got to the shops. Most everything else is restricted or banned.
Unless you’re a duck. Then any old shit goes.
