The Friday Flashback

This week's Friday Flashback is from June 2007 when we got an exciting surprise in our field.

I SPY


Shhh I am being stealthy. I haf spied sumfing in our field that's not yooshully there.


Look it's big fev-vers. We don't yooshully git ducks like that here, they are yooshully smaller mallards.


Here comes back up. Flynn has spied him too, and Mr. Duck duzn't efun know we're watching him.


Uh-oh, he's just seen us. Now we're haffing a three way stare down.

Note from mum:
The duck was very tame, probably from the local fruit farm. He let me pick him up, and at the third attempt I got him to fly away, "fev-vers" intact.

  8. At first we thought that was a very large pigeon...we think we woulda be skeered of a duck, now matter how friendly they might be...

  17. Wow! That woulda been something to see! We had a duck in our yard early this summer, but we never were able to get close to it...we just saw it when we were inside...

  19. Phew you two had got that duck covered. Mum says she is glad your mum got the duck away. I think she was a apoil sport Hugs GJ xx

  20. You two had it surrounded until the mean ol' mum person came and spoiled your fun! We think we might have been just a bit skeered of that duck, it looks bigger than us! (We're not as big as you guys.) It might have snatched and carried one of us away!! :o

    Purrs and hugs,

  22. Wow! That was a big fevver!

    We have learnt through expereince that not all fevvers are good for nomming.

    Our fevvers Izzy Whizz and Missy Moo are very scary as they're not afraid to bite back!

  23. That was your chance guys! We were wanting to see some feathers flying...oh well, we are glad the bird is ok, and safely returned home :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. That is a huge birdie. You are very brave to engage in a stare down with him!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a brave hunter you are to go after something that big. And I cannot believe that he stuck around for you to try and get him three times.
    i saw on CB that you were having a flash back Friday. Do you do this every week. That is a neat idea.

  30. Very interesting-looking duck! I've never seen one like that before. I thought it was some kind of game hen or something.

    At least it provided some entertainment for the boys!
