From their behavior I presume. :sherlock: You know which is the female because she's always nagging him! :giggle:

:lol: Yes, from their behaviour, but it's more like an unhappy marriage. The male doesn't seem to pay much attention to her and ignores her attempts to get in contact with him. It was the same last year where he didn't participate in the brooding at all and suddenly left her while she was sitting on the nest. He never came back and a few days later she had gone too. I wonder how it will go this year.

Not good at all. They need some kind of therapy, I suppose. I wish to see some cute, small ducklings (cygnets) this summer :D
