There are a male and female duck beginning to Nest in my yard, I don't live close to a water source, closest lake is about a half mile. Should I have a professional relocate the ducks?

No, let them nest where they want to nest. The hen will walk the ducklings to the nearest body of water that she likes once they have hatched.
