He’s back!

The Parson -one footed duck r

My hero the one footed duck is back!   I’ve had people ask about this fella since I posted his story on 26 Jan.  He disappeared for weeks during the very cold weather and I thought he had not survived.  I had just accepted that he had been lucky to survive as long as he had and he’d done well, when I turned up to feed the flocks and there he was on his favourite rock, (he does actually have  a favourite rock), as if he’d never been away.  He’s looking good too.  So, here he is enjoying the spring sunshine.  I’ve no idea where he went but it’s great to have him back.

    Happy he survived the cold spell. Maybe he found a warm place to hang out for the duration…

      I’ve no idea where he got to he or how he did it but he did well to survive.

    Hmmm… I guess that means there’s hope for us all. 😐

      He’s tough for sure and maybe there is a lesson for us in how to survive. He just kept going through some terrible weather. Hard to imagine anything coming through it.

    Strength and endurance, the human race could learn a lot from our web-footed friend. Glad he is enjoying his favorite rock!

    That’s wonderful. He’s a survivor.
