Not Quite What You Expect When You Top Up the Feeders


I regularly visit my local nature reserve at Cromwell Bottom and always take along a bag of seeds for the birds and a bag of peanuts for the Jays.

The feeding area has lots of logs with holes drilled to pop the feed in as well as hung up feeders and bird tables. I spread the seed around, filled the log with peanuts and sat back to see who might visit.

I wasn't quite expecting this female Mallard to drop in and start devouring everything. As she wasn't designed to cling to logs she regularly slipped off but always returned for more.
