What a lovely day after all the rain yesterday. Set off to do some gardening but spent the afternoon watching the ducklings again. Unfortunately we're down to 7 now from 12. They headed from the river, across the lawn, through the raspberry canes, then over the veggie patch between the broad beans and cabbages, before reaching the pond. They had a swim then sat in the sun with Daisy keeping a close eye on things - just like an afternoon on the beach! The plank allows the ducklings to get out of the pond - they are not big enough yet to jump up the straight sides. They soon got the hang of things. Better get back to the gardening!
