Mister Mallard is washing himself and swimming in the little Lily pond even though the whole lake is behind him.
She lays an egg right there next to the pond!
The female will not set on the eggs until they are ALL laid and then will set on them. If I had an incubator I would take this lone egg as I don't feel she will come back to it laying in the open like this :( So interesting though!
