As "spawning" of a different kind happened this morning. After I let our ducks out I found this :

Compared to certain fish though they're not the greatest parents. Eggs was duly abandoned as they've spent the morning so far looking for slugs and swimming :

Sweet, is that 1pound piece? if so that's about the size of a 10cent piece in OZ which makes that egg pretty tiny.
Are you going to try to incubate it? Good Job Ducks
cheers J
