Getting into the swim

Did anyone say 'water'?

Ducks love water.  My ducks like nothing better than to play about in their little water pool, but when they first arrived in my garden as little tiny ducklings they had to wait for a bit until they got a little older for their first swim.  I remember it well!  Of course I took heaps of pictures of the great event and I thought I would share some with you today!  It was a lot of fun esp for Waddles and Hazel.  They splashed about and chased each other around and around.  Lots of fun and games.

They took to water like….ducks!    Yes, it is true to say that their favourite thing of all things is water, although a tasty snail is quite a treat also.  That first day was sunny and pretty, just made for messing about in the water.

 But they did look a little bedraggled after!   A great deal of time had to be spent drying off and preening.  Well, a girl must look her best.  And then, back into the water for some more fun!
