Our ducks have returned!
Actually we first saw them two days ago on 1st April, but I was a bit busy then with the purple saxifrage.
This was taken at 6.30am on 1st April when they first appeared.
Today a single drake (might be the same one) has visited twice.
They are very consistent about when they return. Last year it was 29th March, and in 2007 it was 30th March. They usually stay until about the end of July.
