The ducklings on the pond next to my garden are now spilling over into my garden and visiting regularly to clean up the seeds under my bird feeders. Their mother is very wary and herds them back to the depths of the pond, which is very overgrown and sheltered, if she gets a whiff of any danger. My dog, who also likes ducks, was actually sitting next to me when I took this shot, which just goes to show that he is capable of restraint, even if he rarely manages it!
