I've just been hiding under a tree.
Hiding by the pond whilst 3 ducks flew round and round trying to decide if they would or would not land on or near our wild life ponds. Eventually the female flew off but the 2 males landed in the sheep field and started fighting, but not with much enthusiasm.
One of our itinerant Call Duck Drakes has returned and tried to bring a Mallard wife with him but just got a ticking off from Mr Mallard who soon flew off again after his mate. I have left our Call Duck up there still in the field. If I get the chance I will clip his wings to try to reduce his wanderings.
Strange Autumnal weather has been with us for a few days now. You shouldn't get Wind, mist and heat at this time of year, well not all at once.
There is still a lot to do to put the garden to bed for the winter but the pool is done and the solar panel removed for storage. Most of the garden seats are away and lots of dead plants from pots have been cleared. But it is difficult to find the energy and drive needed.
