I live in small heap with a little pond.
When I say little, it's large enough that it is on the local ordinance survey map and I have a rowing boat.
Anyway, for the last couple of years I have had ducks and moorhens living there. I'm now upto the grand old count of thirty two ducks and ten moorhens.
They are all wild, I do provide feed daily and they are the most wonderfully affectionate creatures - especially the brigade of ducklings who charge out of the wood to surround any visiting person.
A duck isn't just for christmas.
