Island Hopping

The unenviable task of wading (through a pond thick with weed, in XXL chest high waders with a leak in the left knee!) to the island to collect old eggs and shut down the winter shelter.

The ducks have started laying in there which is rather impractical for daily egg collection.

As we don’t want any ducklings this year we’ll be requesting they lay in the house on the bank so I can use their eggs in the kitchen instead.

Hear that ducks? Lay on the mainland please.

      Thank you Jane! Never a day goes by when I take this place for granted, it is absolute heaven. I’ve lived here since I was 4 so am seriously attached to the place ;o)

  2. Haha as bothersome as this must be for you, it does seem like fun! Very nice layout/home for them :)

      Hi chicken! It is the most perfect layout for ducks as they don’t need shutting in at night, as they are safe from the fox at night on the island. Less work for me, nicer for them :)

Go on, leave me a comment... Make my day!
