OK, so one swallow doesn’t make a summer but there’ve been a couple of early arrivals swooping around the veg patch and it certainly makes us feel optimistic! Also, yesterday we heard the cuckoo over in the forest for the first time.
The last couple of days have been lovely – no wind and quite warm even if not blue sky all the time. So I took the opportunity to plant our main crop potatoes with the ducklings paying close attention!

 As you can see,the wee ducks have grown quite a lot and are enjoying their larger bathing facilities! Because they aren’t quite the breed we’d planned, We’ve given them the run of the veg patch in the hope that they’ll keep control of pests. If they become pests themselves, than that’s a different matter!!! At the moment though, they certainly are an entertaining little gang!
