Every winter we get a visit from these ducks (well I can't be certain they are exactly the same ducks!!) landing in the pool when their navigating skills seem to go slightly off to the left somewhat! I'm fairly certain they are actually heading to McDonald Park (with lake) a few streets over. I think they are rather nice but I'm sure that anyone who knows anything about ducks understands that they can make a horrible mess, (not that anyone is mad enough to be swimming in 16C weather), so a lot of arm flapping and shoooing ensues to guide them on their true flight path. This year should be fun, the pool now has a cover over it, so it'll be more like a 'crash' rather than a 'splash' landing!! Don't worry, no duck will be harmed, it's a soft cover, but I must confess the 'wicked' side of me will have the camera at the ready to catch what a 'startled' duck looks like..Any day now.....!!
