Our ducks are checking out available nesting sites. Even Sir Francis is getting in on the act.
Mayo, (so called because her sibling Cinco chose the cupboard on the other side of the pizza oven underneath the sink) is going for the safety of the under counter cupboard.
Nora, named after her sibling Dora, who loved to go exploring in the woods, until her encounter with Mr Fox, is in her duck house.
Let's hope Sooty shows more sense this year.
With all this early activity. Maybe, just maybe, we're in for a mild short winter.
