SP3507 : No ducks at Ducklington

No ducks at Ducklington
No ducks at Ducklington
The notice says "In the interests of the preservation of this pond please do not feed the ducks". It seems the ducks have taken this to heart because there were none to be seen on this late August day. In deciding to vote with their feet, they had probably also taken into account that the pond was so overgrown with vegetation that there was hardly any water to have a good paddle in. Ducklington without its ducks seems very strange - hopefully they have subsequently returned.
