Wood Pigeon and Mallard

Nothing unusual about a Wood Pigeon and a Mallard, except these photos were taken in my garden today. The pigeon is nesting on some wire mesh, and the presence of a Sparrowhawk alerted me to the discovery of the Mallard and her 10 ducklings. What hope for their survival ?
I presume the warm weather has played a large part in this behaviour.

I think Pigeons nest most of the year round
