Autumn down the List

Lucy-dog is sniffing the air for rabbits...

...she isn't interested in the glorious Autumn view down the field we call the List 

...neither is Gipsy, who's just sniffing for anything.

DUCKS and DRAKES to the rescue.
Our pond was covered with a green weed for much of the summer - even though it's fed by spring water.
Throwing in a bale of barley straw was an option to get rid of the weed 'blanket'
Then a flotilla of more than 20 ducks turned up from the village lodge.
They dived in.
And tucked in.
It took them a couple of weeks to eat it all.
Thank you ducks... and drakes.
