Renovating the pond
We had been planning to clean out and renovate the duck pond but the fox attack on Saturday morning brought forward the plans. We spent 4 hours today draining the pond, clearing out the mud, refilling it with water, dismantling the duck shelter and replacing it with one of the small henhouses, and resetting the net over the run. It was an exceptionally muddy day but job was complete by about 2pm.
