Reluctant to post yet another missing duck post as I had to hastily edit the first when Mrs Campbell was found sitting on what I thought was 5 eggs which turned out to be 7, now 8 or 9.
However, Dulcie, our tamest duck as the boys always bullied her when she first came. Went missing at bed time last night. She hadn't reappeared this morning which I hoped she would when the others were let out.
Also so Peaches, who sat all day yesterday as she did the previous fight off Freckles, another female as she was far too curious about her nest. There was such a commotion that one of the Cray twins (boys) came to the rescue and pulled the offending Freckles out of the way by her neck to allow Peaches to sit in peace.
