It's the first time it's been full since it was built in April last year and the first time the ducks have been in. I didn't see them in it, of course, but there were loads of feathers in there, so they must have been in there diving, swimming and getting their feathers into shape. At lunchtime we went down and put the ducks back into the normal hen area so that it would be easier for me to get them inside at bedtime.
The rain was terrific this afternoon, so heavy that it was bouncing up again off the roof of the logshed, and by 4.00pm we'd had about a dozen very short powercuts, which meant the Sky box, and internet were reset each time, very frustrating!
Even the logs which are under cover, are slightly damp when they come inside and have to be dried on top of the woodburner before using.
