Rediscovering the pond
This afternoon, whilst picking raspberries in the fruitcage, I noticed the ducklings wander past and rediscover the pond. It was a few minutes before they had the courage to go into the water but when they did go in, they were like kids on holiday. And then the khaki campbell drake appeared and chased them away. I thought that would be the end of their visits to the pond but this evening I spotted them making a return trip. And they spent a good deal of time on the water and left of their own accord when they had had enough. Hopefully now they will spend less time lying in the water feeders and more time on the pond.
