From observation it would appear that our released rescue ducks are moving down into the valley at night and returning back up the hill to the house in the mornings.

A few times in a row I have now been observing them in the paddock in the morning, making their way up the hill back to the house.

Down at the pond or on their way up they must have met our resident paradise ducks.

This morning they were all teaming up in the paddock and making their way up together.

Duckies, duckies everywhere

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….

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.

New critters have arrived

Our 2 little baby goats are called Muddy Valley Twi and Muddy Valley La. They love bouncing around in their paddock and up onto the things in their playground.

Flooding – groundhog day

This year was special and I had not yet seen the water that high. Kumeu and Waimauku townships flooded too and other suburbs in West Auckland. For some it was pretty bad and I feel sorry for the affected people – and animals.

Lockdown – here we go again

If not doing office work, we fix fences, move animals around, collect, cut and chop firewood, dig trenches, build goat houses 😉 and fix all sorts of things that break over time.

Water everywhere – in the midst of winter

It’s been rather wet, foggy and cold in the last couple of days. The cats spent more time inside and expressing a form of cabin fever when awake but they are mostly asleep.

The horses are asking for more food, the chickens are hiding in their house and the ducks – well, the ducks are in their element.
