13th February 2021, don't often get ice on the pond in recent years, rarely cold enough for long enough.

Photo

Nice icicles from the pond filter outlet, only one pump running during the winter. 

Photo

18th February 2021, ice did not last long, first duck visit of the season, here almost every day since, but mostly just to feed. 

Photo

20th February 2021, same ducks as last year, friendly, waiting for breakfast.

And quite happy to eat bird seed from the lawn.  Normally get their own at dusk otherwise the pigeons eat it all. 

Photo

2nd March 2021, waiting for breakfast again, often in the middle of the lawn so someone sees them from house. 

Photo

14th April 2021, still coming back for food most days.

Photo

Eating bread in the pond.

2nd May 2021, 7pm back for evening meal, bird seed on the grass.

5th May 2021, when she is sitting on a nest elsewhere, she will come back on her down for half an hour to feed. 

Photo

Longer days and lots of sun means the water lillies are growing well.

Photo

9th May 2021 10:30am, unusual to see the ducks in mid morning, but the girl is now tolerating being followed by two boys. 

Photo

Although one boy is kept away by the other.

15th May 2021, batchelor group of three boys here for breakfast, swim around the island following each other.,

The three boys again.

15th May 2021, hundreds of tadpoles in the pond, a mix of frogs and toads, can really tell from the spawn and there was lots of each.
