Spotted this little guy beside the pond today. The picture doesn’t show it, but its back is a lovely golden colour—the green tinting is just on the sides.
And shortly after, I looked around and spotted the first ducklings we’ve seen this season as mamaduck brought them across the lawn from the slough to the pond.
There are 10 ducklings altogether—we’ll see how many survive. She didn’t seem terribly disturbed by our presence, which makes me think she must be Ducky, the injured duck we fed a couple of years ago. (We don’t feed the ducks anymore, not since discovering that they EAT FROGS.
Frogs, watch out.
