In memory of Jemima

Our duck Jemima was named after the wonderful Beatrix Potter character Jemima Puddle Duck, because of her habitat of trying to hide her eggs. Like all ducks she was at her happiest in the duck pond. She was a plucky little duck, not afraid to let herself be heard particularly if she was hungry.

With her mate Nelson she spent hours in the vegetable plot searching for slugs and other food.

We’ve had her for over six years and we will miss her.
