The battle for Lodge Farm pond

Out of my office window, I have a wonderful view of our pond and the myriad of wildlife on and around it. (Trust me - I appreciate how lucky we are!!)

Anyway, upon this pond a bit of a battle has begun between a pair of Moorhens and a pair of wild ducks for the nesting rights on the log that sticks out of the water.

Now its not for me to take sides but the Moorhens were there last year and produced three lovely broods, and to be fair, the ducks are being a bit of a bully. So far today, the Moorhens have taken ownership twice but keep being thrown off.

I think I am going to have to sink a new log for the Moorhens. I'll keep you posted.
