Seven Ducklings and Tour de France.

Now that I have found my tinfoil hat and put it on I should be safe from any telepathic interplay from / with ascended Masters, it should protect me from aliens and 4/5G signals, though these are already weaker today because of the rain.

There is a lot of excitement locally because the Tour de France is starting in Brest and then the second stage starts up at Perros-Guirec on Sunday. It takes in some of the local landmarks.

There should be some coverage on the telly chez vous. We will probably not go up to watch because we have no idea how congested it is going to be. No doubt the local newspapers will be full of it. We will do our walkies tomorrow.

Something totally excellent has just happened.

I went out for a brief stroll by the pond and close to Le Jaudy I disturbed the female duck and her third attempt at a brood. The first one was predated, the second one had four and this one has seven tiny little wild ducklings. Quacking she led them off to hide in the reeds at the far end of the pond near where she had her first nest. I went inside to get the telephoto and the wife. By the time we got back out she had disappeared.

I had wondered why I hadn’t seen her for a while. Now I know, she has been sitting on eggs.

I think I’ll keep the telephoto on just in case she / they show up.

It is very nice to have a wild duck and her seven ducklings swimming on your pond.

Made my day.
