PostSubject: For those who like this sort of stuff....   Sun Jul 19, 2015 7:41 pm

....a month or two ago, my best Bulgarian friend phoned in a bit of a panic. He is a groundsman at one of the Plovdiv Universities and had exposed a wild ducks nest whilst strimming in long grass. He knows that my better half has a very good incubator and hoped we could try and save these 12 eggs. Much rather fast driving followed and a few hours later all the eggs were safely in the system.

To cut a long story short...all 12 eggs produced a fluffy bundle, although one did fade away after 24 hrs. We have cared for, sheltered and fed these lovely little creatures for more than six weeks and have been amazed at their growth rate during this time.

Well, today was the day for their planned release back into the wild and it all went without a hitch.

Mother Nature now has her ducks back.

Not sure if I can make this work, but I'll try and post some pics...from an hour old, in my daughters hand, up until today when they tasted freedom.

Sorry, it won't work, so You'll have to use your imagination.

Nice happy story, thanks.
We've all had techy issues of one sort or another, here and elsewhere. Maybe it's an age thing (ours and / or our equipment!)
Facebook seems to be a convenient way of sharing photos.

The problem I seem to have is about the size of the pics, not the actual process. I just posted 24 photos on another forum with no probs, but that won't work here....and I don't know how to take smaller photos.


Anyway, you got the drift of the story.

I too had the same problem but just before the last page after you have uploaded hit host don't go into the resizing) then copy the middle link - this is the photos and post it onto your post.  My photos are all big too see below. Do a few test posts I will delete once you are sorted.
