Ducks on the pond

It seems Mr & Mrs Wood Duck have been making use of the ammenities here at the miniature Celestequest Wildlife Sanctuary.

Plans to widen the pond and perhaps build a refuge island plus the planting of rushes and other water plants may have to wait. We don't want to scare them off. The amount of rain recently means the water is constantly renewed and a lot of frogs have also moved in. They sing about it in the evenings. Ducky Decoy however has been washed against the overflow so many times he is now in temporary dry dock.

Or should that be "dry duck"?
