Mallard Mystery

This picture of about 200 Mallard was taken yesterday at Glendine in west Waterford. They were part of a flock estimated to number at least 1000. All were waddling along this woodland path in a very determined manner, intent on reaching their destination. Where they came from and where they were going, is not known. Why they chose to walk rather then fly is another mystery. Any ideas ??
