Making Friends with a Duck
There I was sitting on the banks of the Baroon Pocket Dam, near Montville - nursing a sore foot, when I made a little friend. He was very interested but a little shy.
A little black duck showed great interest in me and my knitting - and possibly my sandwiches?
He came closer for a look - keeping a wary eye on me - but not too scared.
I kept very still - and waited............
He took a little bite of sandwich - but, "naaaaah, think I'll go and see what Mum's got for tea!"
Such a peaceful place - a lovely spring day; birds nesting and flying about and singing; no sounds except the lapping water, the birds, and the breeze in the new leaves on the trees.....
I heard a noise behind me...............
A cheeky Butcher bird checkingout what I had for lunch, too!
