    I love that you have one bird in flight there! Thank you for linking up to Country Kids and I hope you escaped the showers on your duck feeding.

      We had to leg it after a bit when it starting chucking it down!

    did you feed them too? he looks wrapped up nice and snug and i like how you have captured the photo taken as he would view those ducks x

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 8:00 am

      Yeah we took some bread for them, he loved it and got a bit carried away throwing it in too quickly! 🙂

    Feeding the ducks is such a fun way to pass the time!

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:26 pm

      Thanks 🙂

    What a lovely photo,it reminds me of a place called Coombe Abbey

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:26 pm

      I’m going to have to google that. I only know Fiona’s Coombe Mill 🙂

    ‘Quack’

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:25 pm

      Haha!

  16. A Frugal Wife January 13, 2013 / 10:01 am

    This is a lovely shot! I miss our trips to the duck pond. We don’t seem to have one near our new house.

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:25 pm

      Ahh that’s a shame. Z loves it! Might be a local garden centre with a duck pond maybe?

  17. bavariansojourn January 13, 2013 / 10:53 am

    Can’t beat a bit of bird-feeding. Used to keep my two quiet for hours! 😀

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:24 pm

      We love it although think we need to take about a loaf of bread to go more than 10 minutes!

  18. LauraCYMFT January 13, 2013 / 10:56 am

    Lovely photo. I love the park when the ducks are out.

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:23 pm

      Me too. I think they’ll be gone for a while now as its getting too cold

  19. shahnaz January 13, 2013 / 11:34 am

    what fun…so simple yet so much fun x

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:23 pm

      It’s very near us and he loves them so a really good little walk.

  20. Daily Waffle January 13, 2013 / 11:54 am

    Cute photo.

    Always remember being mesmerised watching ducks.

    I realise how weird that sounds!

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:22 pm

      Hehe doesn’t sound that weird.

  21. Rachael (Tales from the Village) January 13, 2013 / 12:16 pm

    Feeding the ducks is one of my favourite things about having children – I think because it’s a really strong memory from my own childhood. I still remember stealing mouthfuls of dry stale bread and thinking it was the best thing ever.

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:17 pm

      I thought that’d exactly what z would do but he got very excited chucking it all in at once!

  22. Countryidyll January 13, 2013 / 1:21 pm

    Bet they appreciated their bread on such a chilly day!

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:22 pm

      They were a bit too eager. Must take more bread next time I think!

  23. Mum of One January 13, 2013 / 2:16 pm

    Ah thats a lovely Sunday activity…except I always get a bit scared of the swans by us LOL.

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:21 pm

      I probably would have run off if a swan came near us!

  24. pobbingalong January 13, 2013 / 4:09 pm

    love the winter duck feeding. great pic x

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:21 pm

      Me too although I think it’s going to be a bit too cold this week!

  25. jo January 13, 2013 / 8:40 pm

    ohh we have ponds like that near us too!

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:20 pm

      Nice little walks aren’t they?

  26. fivegoblogging January 13, 2013 / 9:05 pm

    Looks like the perfect day for duck feeding 🙂

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:20 pm

      It was for about 10 minutes then started chucking it down so we had to leave!

  27. Nikki Thomas January 13, 2013 / 9:05 pm

    That’s gorgeous! He is very brave, my lot are always terrified as the ones near us chase you around

    • Notmyyearoff January 13, 2013 / 10:20 pm

      I was more scared than him. Some of the ducks looked a bit ruthless!

  28. Scudds January 14, 2013 / 4:41 am

    Lovely photo x

  29. sarahmumof3 January 14, 2013 / 10:51 am

  30. mumsmoments January 14, 2013 / 9:42 pm

    what a lovely photo…..i love the nice woolly hat too!

    • Notmyyearoff January 19, 2013 / 3:21 pm

      That’s from gap I think!

    • Notmyyearoff January 19, 2013 / 3:02 pm

      Thanks 🙂

  31. Susan January 18, 2013 / 12:40 pm

    Lovely. I hope the fowl appreciated the effort to duck down!

    • Notmyyearoff January 19, 2013 / 3:01 pm

      I think so 🙂

  32. Elaine Livingstone January 18, 2013 / 6:00 pm

    a great pastime in the cool months, and the birds appreciate it

    • Notmyyearoff January 19, 2013 / 3:00 pm

      It was absolutely freezing but think they enjoyed it!

  33. TheBoyandMe January 18, 2013 / 11:40 pm

    He looks completely engrossed. SO fantastic to see him develop into a real little boy, not a baby anymore.

    Thanks for linking up

    • Notmyyearoff January 19, 2013 / 2:59 pm

      I know, I can’t believe he’s two already!

  34. Red Rose Mummy January 19, 2013 / 12:38 am

    Great photo, feeding the ducks is such a simple pleasure. I think it is probably my little boy’s favourite activity!

    • Notmyyearoff January 19, 2013 / 2:59 pm

      Z loves them and has no fear of them. I get a bit nervous of the swans, they always look really agitated!
