Nile goose family lost a duckling

On the Albert canal I spotted a Egyptian goose family with 7 ducklings, a couple of weeks ago. Until the day before yesterday there were still 7. Today I counted 6. They lost one, in spite of their efforts. Father was watching his siblings very closely like a watchdog, but still... I feel sorry for them, and hope they don't loose any more...
Todays pics are made mainly alongside the Albert canal in Vroenhoven (B) with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 compact camera.
