On Sunday afternoon I was pottering around in the garden at Scott Road when these two ducks descended on our pond. They were pretty non-plussed by my presence and as you can see, let me get quite close to them. They stayed until dark when I must admit I started to worry that they’d settle in and start nesting – our garden is secure and we have a visiting fox, so any ducklings would be very vulnerable. Anyway, they’d gone by next morning, only to return the later in the day. This pattern continued until Wednesday, but we haven’t seen them since, hopefully they’re settling nicely on the canal….
