    Just wait a little bit and see if she will go back to it. It depends on the duck.
    Some ducks do not mind people messing with their nest and others do. If they have been setting it for a while they usually will go back to it.

    she has gone back to set on it but it looks like she has shifted the nest about a foot from where she was. is that normal??? maybe its when she moves around on the nest and it pushes a little??? idk. i know she moves alot and shifts alot too.[​IMG]
