Duck and Slide

It was a lovely day so we decided to walk down to the duck pond. It’s only a five minute walk and it’s a lovely place to visit. Once the bread is finished and we’ve walked around the pond we like to go to the playground. If it’s a really nice day we venture a little further and go across the fields to the stream where the little ones like to paddle. We’ll save that for another day though.

Excited Children reach the duck pond

Walk in line and waddle like a duck

When we arrive we walk around the duck pond avoiding the fishermen and find a spot where we can sit by the water. Then we feed the greedy ducks, who are definitely not shy, they will come up and take it out of your hand if you let them, but a peck off a duck is not very pleasant so I don’t encourage that practice.

Hello duck!

While we were there we witnessed a rather ugly duck get into a bit of a squabble. The other ducks very loudly gave him his marching orders and forced him out of the pond and up over the grassy hill. I couldn’t help but start singing;

“Quack, Quack, get out, quack quack, get out, quack quack get out of town”

Maybe that ugly duck will come back one day as a beautiful swan. (I doubt it somehow)

As you can see the littlies had fun feeding the ducks

After feeding the duck we took the littlies to play at the park. They had loads of fun and it was a lovely way to end our day.

    Sounds like you have a great set up here! We love feeding the ducks too and well being able to get so close to the pond we would probably be chucking stones in as well. It's great when you can access a good local park!
