So cute and fluffy, daring and trusting while mama duckie Erwien looks over them.

Erwin’s little bunch has turned into a bunch of squatters, the Squat Squad!

The little ducklings have grown over the last couple of days and become so docile, or should I rather say they’ve sussed out where the food comes from…. As the chirping got louder and louder we were quick to find out why… the little duckling Squat Squad had decided to venture indoors… not just once… they’re pretty cute, but well they’re messy ducks, so out they had to go again. They have come inside quite a few times to look for the humans with the food bucket.

The cats know not to mess with the ducks, they just ignore them. Or leave, when mama duck hisses at the cats.

Winter Solstice & Matariki

The weather has turned from somewhat wet and warm to rather wet and cold. The horses have been rugged up just like the goats. The rodent infestation has become noticeable, so we started putting up more traps on top of the traps and bait stations we already had.

Erwien’s return

Erwien came back this years with a new bunch of ducklings and proudly presented them, just like last year. She’s such a good mummy.

Muddy days

It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.

Springtime again and lovely weather

It’s so nice to get outside between rain break. The weather has been warming up over the the last days and we are getting 20 deg during the day.
