The Not So Wild Duck Chase
I looked out the kitchen window this morning and saw this trio in my garden, madly nibbling away at anything green they could find. As soon as I stepped outside with my camera they were off and running. The jig was up.
They knew they were in trouble and headed straight back to the duck pen.
A quick stop for a nibble on the greenery before trying to fly back into the pen. They are not exactly aerodynamic – they barely get two feet off the ground – so off and running they went again.
One down, two to go.
Two down, one to go. And Quackers led Hannah on a merry chase. Around the duck pen.
Over to the asparagus patch with the Colonel and the Girls looking on in curiosity.
All the while staying just a few steps in front of Hannah.
Nabbed, at last! I suppose I could have helped, but then I would have had to put down the camera.
Hannah and Quackers who I’m sure was already plotting the next great escape.

This was my greenhouse at the height of winter. The snow on the roof makes it look a bit lopsided, but the greenhouse stood strong to February’s heavy snow. It … Continue reading
