Nice Weather if You're a Duck!

Sorry for being so miserable yesterday and thank you for your support. I am not really much better today but I must pull myself together. So I thought I would share some lovely visitors I have just had to our rented house:-


Don't they look tall when they stretch their necks like that? They have come into the garden here before and I don't know where they have come from as I can't think of any local ponds. Maybe the amount of rain we are having, anywhere will do!


As you can see, they were only about two feet away from me, not at all shy, but very hungry! When they are this close to you, you can actually see the bread going down their gullets. Sorry, I wouldn't make much of a wildlife correspondent, would I? I probably shouldn't admit to being so stupid (I'm a bit of a towny) but I thought that ducks couldn't fly. Colin said they could. Argument ensued. Then he kept saying (this is when we are in France), jump up quickly, there is one flying over there! I have never caught them at it so I still think he is winding me up! So these ducks have obviously waddled from somewhere!
