Again I did not see…

Again, I did not see ‘one eye’ 🙁 I just hope he is away somewhere chasing the ladies as Drakes do at this time of year. I did see 4 Dabchicks, 2 Coots, ‘stiff legs’ and our lone duckling (I will have to think of another name for him as he is not a duckling […]

I am a little bit worried about…

I am a little bit worried about ‘one eye’ in that after 4 passes along the banks (2 round trips) I didn’t see ‘one eye’ at all, which is unusual ? I hope he was just hiding somewhere but as he cannot see very well out of one eye he is susceptible to an attack […]

Our Lone Duckling has…

Our Lone Duckling seems to have lost the pinky spot on his beak, this means that I will probably not be able to recognise him soon. I said ‘him’ because he has started to get the green sheen to his head like the males have. I saw ‘one eye’ and ‘stiff legs’, there were also […]
