Mallard Duck, still is here again.

She was still here, with the fisherman's hook. No chance froM the RSPCA, so I rang them up. They said sorry, but it will be done later. Well, I went off to see something, it was a Grass Snake. I was told it would be where, well I can't you that. But, it turned out to be a Grass Snake skin, it is ready to shed. When I returned to the lake, there was no sign of the Mallard Duck........... Which,  is a good sign.

    BY the way, I've never realised that there's something like Mottephobia! Shame that your daughter can't enjoy the beauty of the butterflies.

  5. Such a sweet looking girl. I hope they've looked after her. Do you think you'd recognize her without the hook? :)

  8. I'm glad you sorted the duck. The snake would be looking very smart now in it's new jacket.

  12. Oh Bob, what an awful shame, and I can only imagine the feeling in your gut when you saw she still had the hook in place. I do hope that while you were off on other adventure with snake/snake skin, that someone rescued her. Please do check back with them and let us know how she got along. Take care~
