It was about this time last year that the ducks arrived and they are back again. Last year they seemed to live in the garden for a couple of days, then flew in to eat the duck food every now and again for a further few weeks.
This year they stayed for a day then met next door’s cat. Ducks don’t seem to like cats and we haven’t seen them since.
Edit – there was a noise that sounded like a cat being attacked by a duck one evening. Ducks are back again and we haven’t seen the cat since.
