Duck shelter

Duck shelter Aug 15 (2)

In the evening, we put the ducks in a run made from a former polytunnel. We've replaced the plastic sheeting with a net. One of my first jobs each morning is to roll back the net to allow out the ducks. However, though this has been a success at keeping the ducks safe from the foxes, it does not provide them with any cover. So on Sunday, we built them a rather solid shelter, using old materials including the old door that used to be the gate to the allotment. The ducks seem to be quite content with it.
