Update of the ducks ……. this is nt Jakey and Mildred, could be Mildred but i don’t think so because she is afraid of me. Jakey has a limp, and he is a big guy! These two seem happen the garden, on the pond , on the lawn and nibbling under the wild bird feeders.
This is Jakey: poor chap has limp and waddles! seems a bit anxious though, flies in, looks about and does nt stay long. seems to have linked up with a couple more drakes so they quite often come as a three to the pond for a bit.
This was an unwelcome guest! On the deck at 6.30 a m luckily I had not filled the lid bird feeders by then, I came downstairs for coffee to find him right there! This image was through the kitchen window.
for this second one I went outside to take it
