These ducks have appeared before but not on a thematic blog. There is a corner of a field miles away from lakes or rivers that has been 'flooded' for over two years, sometimes the water area is quite large, at others it's just mud. I'm not too sure what the drakes were up to here in March 2009, but it was springtime after all.
In my second photo it's the photographer who is mad. I waited for what seemed like hours to catch a great tit on the bird feeder, but it only ever had its back to me in March 2008.
Finally my son sent me this picture taken in Fowey, Cornwall also in March 2008. It must have been windy!
There's more madness to be seen at Carmi's March Madness
