Wednesday: Duck report

This will count as “Readers’ wildlife photos” today. Yesterday I had communications from two of our duck farmers, including Anna, both of whom sent photos and gave an optimistic report: all eighteen ducklings, large and small, are thriving. Here’s a report from the non-Anna duck farmer

    It’s understandable that Jerry’s new assistant – “non-Anna duck farmer” – may wish to remain anonymous. But s/he needs a better nom de guerre. Perhaps we should hold a contest.

      An excellent idea. I have no suggestions at the moment, but maybe some flash of duck brilliance will strike.

    At least a few things are right with the world this morning. All the babies at Botany Pond are accounted for and this is great. Many thanks to the duck farmer(s) who are filling in.

    Bags the middle spot in the duck flower.

      The first time I saw a duck flower (just like this) was while hiking along a canal in England. A bit of a surprise. Don’t step on them.

    Watching the “duck flower” bloom is a great incentive for duck service.

    I would never have imagined that I would be so enthralled with even a single duck family. And now there are two, with exploits to be followed!
