The young ducklings are doing what all young ducklings do when it's raining. They huddle up close to mum.
Herring gulls aren't quite so cuddly, and their young have only each other for warmth. The gulls, incidentally, are several weeks older than the ducklings but are still much less independent.
Fox cubs, on the other hand, enjoy a bit of rough and tumble!
And the odd bit of photography
Camera note: bird shots taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens. Foxes photographed with the EF 24-105 F4L IS USM lens.
