A Perfect Nest for Mrs Mallard

Last year, Mrs Mallard had great problems finding the perfect nest and learnt a lot not only from her experience but also that of the other birds on Platt Fields lake. This year, she is determined to find the perfect nest, safe and warm, for her ducklings to hatch in and a neighbouring school offers the ideal solution. Once the ducklings have hatched, she faces another problem. How will she get her young out of the secure courtyard and back to their home on the lake?Regular visitors to Platt Fields park will recognise many of the bird characters in this story and the book also contains many useful facts to help children identify the birds they see on the lake.
