Ducks: a reblog

I’m reblogging this for today’s Flashback Friday.
We were on the boat when I wrote this but since moving here we have seen a lot more ducks and ducklings that have been documented on my blog, though this year, not many ducklings survived.

These are my pictures of the ducklings over the years we’ve been here


The other day, I said I didn’t know very much about ducks so I did a little bit of reading up on them courtesy of the RSPB website.
ducks There is a saying ‘knowing the ins and outs of a duck’s bum’, which by definition means knowing the most intricate details of anything and being very inquisitive.
I would have thought it meant more of knowing which end to stuff, but moving on………….

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    How sad; I hate to hear about ducklings not surviving. We live near a duck pond and we bring our granddaughter whenever we can. She loves all sorts of animals and this is a real treat for her. The only difficult part is keeping her out of the water! Lol!

    • Gulls and crows got most of them. I think there was only one brood that had survivors, 4 out of the original 16 from what I was told. No goslings at all this year.
