I visited the pond today with the intention of feeding the ducks, but they were nowhere to be seen. I took a bag full of duck food; bread is not great food for ducks as it lacks much nutritional value but can fill them up, stopping them from eating the diet they require.
While at the pond I did see some other birds – two Canadian geese, 20 Jackdaws and a Coot that picked up some weeds and ran away with them. It was funny to watch him run in the shallow water.
I also saw some bees visiting a mass of flowers. There were around 10 bees that I could see, and each had it’s bottom half totally covered in pollen. The plant must have been very sneaky to leave so much pollen on the bees!
