No Place Like Home - Return Of The Seven

Was told today by Mr John Bell owner of the rectory, that the Mother duck and the lucky 7 ducklings had returned to his garden from the river !

This is indeed astonishing after escorting them last week from his garden down to the river, the mother duck and ducklings made their way back the following day. Seems like there's no place like home for this particular duck.

The Garden is indeed huge with a lawn and pond, there is ample room for foraging and Mr and Mrs bell provide extra food as well. 

They are delighted to have the ducks and hope they stay until fully fledged.

                             I think they are likely to have ducks every year from now on, since either the mother or young are likely to return every nesting season !
