When we arrived, the river was slightly flooded; but we were still able to get close to feed the ducks.
As I pulled the bread out from under the ptam; the ducks started to gather around!
As I began to throw the bread into the river, more and more gulls started to fly in. The ducks gathered at the waters edge along with some geese; I was a little scared of them! Luckily Emma had her camera to hand and was able to take a few snapshots!
Jack was really happy and was laughing at the ducks flapping around and fighting over who got the bread! The noise was loud; all the squawking from the gulls and quacking from the ducks.
A swan swam over and bravely climbed out of the river. Oh my!!! I didn't realise how big they were! The swan extended its neck; at this point I was stepping back feeling quite scared. The swan started to walk towards Jack and Oli in their prams.
After frantically ripping up the last few slices of bread, we both made a dash for it! I was really quite scared the swans were going to attack Jack and Oil.
We started to walk along the river to the park. Jack and Oli were really excited when they arrive and could see the swings. Once on the swings they both were laughing away and smiling.
Jack had time to walk around and explore the playground. Bless him; he really enjoyed his day out! I love watching him walk around; his little cubby legs tottering about!
