We heard a commotion in the garden yesterday and rushed to the window to see what was going on …..
We couldn’t believe our eyes …
We saw a pair of ducks looking at our pond!
Then one of them got in and had a swim, we were so excited, but decided to stay where we were, even though Nigel was desperate to stroke them, because we didn’t want to frighten them off.
When they both got in Nigel was almost apoplectic and we had to tell him to quieten down a bit. They stayed for about half an hour and we felt very blessed in an Alan Titchmarsh type way that our new pond was the pond of choice for passing ducks and also a little relieved that we hadn’t put any fish in it yet!
