Ducks have appeared in Elam St Open Space! This morning there were a couple of mallard ducks on the patch of water – I think it’s technically called a ‘bog garden’ – among the irises. And somehow they made the whole place feel safer and more alive. Though it’s looking very lush now anyway and the wisteria is out and there are little children in the playground. Check it out – gates on Lilford Road, Gordon Grove and at the side via Elam St or the estate.
