Last year Jolan raised several rescue ducks from various places and people, including those ones that people brought in to the local vet.

Several of them returned throughout the year, like Henk, Erwien and Daffy. So what a joy and surprise that was when a few days ago Erwien showed up with a boyfriend and a whole bunch of fluffy ducklings. Judging by their size, they are only a few days old. Since then, we fed them and looked a bit after them and they now come back every morning and hang out on the front lawn.

The cats observing them closely but seem to understand that this is “friends not food”.

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’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.

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.
