    Ducks have been visiting my late wife and my garden on one side of our bunglalow. They have been coming for many years as the new generations have come on year after year. The photographs are of two of last years ducklings now grown up. The ducklings they will have will show up around the month of May. They will leave about late August for their winter homes. In the meantime they will come three times a day for food.

    It's good to know that they see your garden as a safe haven for them while they eat. Long may they teach future generations to visit you each year.

    Photographing the ducks is no problem as they knew my late wife and I after all the years. Why use the expression " Bird brain " !!. All my neighbours love to see them. Though if they try to feed them they refuse and only come to me.

    This is only like any other pet they know the owners and area anything outside that boundary can feel like a threat.
