We haven't got any chickens yet but, suddenly, we've got eggs!

We arrived at the boats to find that Glenda's planter, that she had planted up with herbs and pansies appeared to have been dug out by a cat..............
But on closer inspection we found a duck egg!

When we got up we found 2 duck eggs, and very nice they tasted too! By the way, it was as well to eat them, as the nightly frosts were ruining them, and, normally, she'll lay more before she'll sit.
UPDATE :- Now, a few weeks later, there are few ducklings on the lake and the swan is sitting on an, obviously, dead egg. Those late frosts took a heavy toll.
