We are winning the strawberry war this summer.
Charlie the duck, strawberry gourmand, has decided to join two of the hens and has gone clucky or is that quacky.

She is not a great sitter, like most ducks I know she gets bored and goes off for regular waddles but while she is being so maternal she stays down near the henhouse, far far away from the strawberry patch.

We don't need the eggs at the moment so we are letting her indulge her hopeless fantasy because unless a wild duck has come a-courting she is destined to remain a lone duck amongst the hens.
