Ducks on the Pond

The colourful male, keeps a watchful eye on events.

Relaxing in comfort
A pair of mallard ducks have decided we make a nice bed and breakfast.  They arrive each night about 4 pm and tuck in for the night.  They go out to eat (I think our neighbour feeds them).  I don't know what the fish think of them!
This has been our year for wild life, we also have a raccoon that strolls the grounds at 5 pm.  It is very fat and healthy looking and only waddles away with a backward glance when we yell at it!
