In Poland, Hili is pensive, and finds a cat’s solution:
Hili: The leaves are falling, birds are flying away…A: What’s your conclusion?Hili: It’s time to go to sleep.
Hili: Liście opadają, ptaki odlatują do ciepłych krajów…
Ja: I jaki wniosek?
Hili: Trzeba iść spać.
It has been an awful couple of days in the Midlands and the North, with appalling rain (Sheffield is flooded). But of course, the waterfowl of Marsh Farm are happy. Look at them all come running out – balm for the soul.

Looks more like a jigsaw than Tetris I reckon, but very cool:

We had 28 ducks this evening. We had 30 based on Jerry’s count on October 17th. So these number around what they did when they were swarming on land last month.
I don’t recognize any of them and they don’t come as close as before. If I had to guess, I’d say that these ducks are migrating and just stopping over for the free smorgasbord. I’ve read that their normal migration can take place throughout the month of November.
JAC: I asked the SDF how migrating ducks could zero in on Botany Pond, the reply was “Maybe they’re reading it on TripAdvisor: “Congenial location, free buffet. Five stars.”
