The chicks and ducklings have arrived!

This week we have hosted 3 hatcheries - 2 of ducklings and 1 of chicks. Watching ducklings hatch is a terrible thief of time - and we have enjoyed trying to "imprint" the ducklings - in order to have them follow us in a line, Tom and Gerry style.  Each child who has been to look at the incubators has been hushed and gentle - and they are genuinely in awe of the process. New life is fundamentally thrilling, and it has framed our first week back nicely.
