river levels are high the local ducks seem to be enjoying
themselves. I have been watching this swan keeping her cygnet
safe by the water's edge over the weekend. I'm not sure
if the young one has damaged its leg though. If you watch
the film, it seems to swim awkwardly with one leg on its
is good to see that the white duck I photographed last year
is still around and enjoying feeding from the top of a laurel
bush in the Hope & Anchor garden. I had not been to
the Hope & Anchor for over a year, until receiving an
friendly email last week, so have not been following his
/ her progress.
ducks and their offspring enjoy the comfort of a part tree
trunk and on picnic tables in the garden.
