Recently a pair of Mallard ducks has been waddling up from the lake to pick through the seed pile that has formed from the messy habits of the upstairs inhabitants at the feeder.
They show up in the morning early, stay for a short time and then make their way back to the lake and carry on with their morning tour.
Occasionally they return later in the afternoon for another nosh.
It snowed the other day.
“Good weather for ducks”, doesn’t usually include frozen feet.
