actually ive noticed a lot of activity in the moat this year. hundreds of little blips on the one water surface. I thought maybe they were tad polls. Then i though how funny and obnoxious it would be with hundreds of frogs all over the castle.
I love those Green Herons, they are fantastic birds.
And yes, I get soooo sad when I see other types of Herons eat the baby ducks. It's really upsetting because there will be nine ducklings and then the next day, there's three.
I always thought those baby ducks would have been well protected, on a similar note has anyone else seen the cats that live in DL? We have seen a few at the Hungry Bear Restaurant and 1 running through Mainstreet late at night.
