Dogs and Ducks

After many months of being asked to introduce more ducks to the pond, visitors to the wood have expressed their delight that we have finally done so. However, we need everyone's cooperation if they are to survive.

Despite the notices around the pond asking owners to ensure their dogs keep away from the ducks, we have already received a video of an incident this morning of a dog chasing after a duck in the water. Fortunately, in this instance the duck escaped... just!

If we are to enjoy having ducks on the pond, and dogs want to enjoy a swim, owners need to act more responsibly and keep their dogs under control. The incident in question has been reported to the Dog Warden.
