Duck News

My blog seems to have been taken over by the wild ducks living in my garden.

Whilst hanging out the washing yesterday morning I heard Mrs Duck scratching around under the shrubs by the shed.

Looking closer, this is what I spied.........

I counted 12 beautiful pale blue duck eggs this morning.  

So happy! 

I am going to have to construct a fence of some kind to protect her and her eggs as we are holding an Easter Egg hunt in the garden on Friday and we have twelve under 5's coming for the day.  Mmmmm could be trouble! 


  1. LOL your Easter Egg hunt could be really eggciting (sorry couldn't help myself) if the kids got hold of those lovely duck eggs! She has made a lovely nest, but imagine laying 12 eggs..... I can't wait until they hatch & you post some pics. Ducklings are sooo cute. Have fun with the hunt!

  2. That's so cute! Can't wait to see pics xxx

  3. That is the loveliest thing to find in the garden.

    I too can't wait to see the pics.

    Thanks for sharing Becky!
