Snow @ Gone Fishin

Snow took us all by surprise this morning. The "girls" (hens) took one look and decided it was breakfast in bed, all nine of them.

The ducks just seemed totally confused as the maize landed and simply dissapeared.

Pigley gone but not forgotten!

This last week we noticed that some of the ducks have been pairing up already (it certainly does not feel like Spring). Poor Pigley seemed to be left out.
A couple of morning there was no sign of Pigley so Alan and I would go for a walk around the lake to see if we could find feathers ,which would tell us if she had been pounced on by a fox, nothing.
Later in the day we would see her come flying in!! not the most graceful birds - usually a belly flop landing.
As the days went by she came and went and appeared to be increasingly on her own. We wondered if it was instinct that she was restless and needed to find a husband... now for the last 3 days no Pigley at all.
So we can only presume she flown off to find one of her own, her fate does not look too rosy being that its still the hunting season and has lost her protection now she has left our lake.
Fingers crossed though that she does not return to us with a family.. buying the maize does not come cheap and she became quite greedy, if a duck was coming to eat close by to her she would pick it up by the tail feathers and shake it!.
