Last summer we bought a couple of 2-day old ducks, Rocky and Sam. They were very cute.

Sadly one of them died in December from a car-related illness. Rocky was lonely all on his own so we got him a couple of girlfriends, Roxanne and Stella. Stella is a┬áMuscovy Duck, the others are Mallards. Rocky didn’t like Stella and preferred Roxanne – we think he didn’t recognise the white duck as a duck! They’re all friends now though.

With our field waterlogged I decided to dig a pond. All I did was dig a big hole and it naturally filled with water. They’ve taken to it like, ahem, ducks to water. It’s lovely to see them splashing about in there. By the way, I’ve not finished making the pond yet.
