There may be sheet ice on the ground but even the harshest of winter days gives us things to be thankful for
Every year in the spring a single pair of wild Mallard ducks visit us. Usually their stay is for no more than 2 weeks.
We don’t know where they come from or where they leave us for but we’ve become attached to their annual visit. Another sign of spring.
This year however they look like they want to extend their stay. They have built a nest in the walled garden and laid six eggs. The nest is located right by the main doorway into the walled garden and no amount of human traffic and noise appears to unsettle the sitting mother.
The dilemma is whether we value our veg or our visitors more?!
