May and June at "Gone Fishin"

We are fortunate to be all but booked up in the Gite/apartment here at "Gone Fishin". Some new guests to the area and others returning. An unusual amount of rain this last week but at last the summer we know has arrived.
As usual the drakes from the lake have been bringing their wives over to the garden to nest in safety, we had a surprise in late May when we noticed a duck had laid 2 eggs in with the hens, at the same time one of the hens were feeling broody and decided she would sit them. Normally there would be no chicks as we do not have a cockerel! but to our surprise and I think the hens surprise the 2 duck eggs hatched!!
She made a wonderful mother far better than the duck, but sad to say only after the second day one duckling disappeared, but the surviving duckling had us and our gite guests in laughter. We placed a large bowl in the garden and the duckling would go for a swim as if in a gold-fish bowl , with mum and aunties looking astonished.
We nicknamed him Donald, he survived about 15 days but sadly mum could not keep up with him and he just disappeared. Three mums have been  successful in their sittings .
