This is Rosie, the Mallard that has been visiting our garden and nicking bird seed since we put in our pond! 🙂
As I’ve previously said, the pond is too small for ducks, so I’m assuming that’s what caught her attention, but she stayed for the food! She comes at least every few days. I have no idea where she is coming from; there is a lake not to far from me where ducks breed, but it’s in a park so they’re used to people, and Rosie doesn’t seem to be.
Most times she comes alone, but a few time she’s brought her bodyguard with her.
We’ve called her Rosie because there used to be a children’s TV show about two rag dolls on a barge, Rosie and Jim (we call the Drake, Jim), and the barge had a duck on it.
