Crash, Bang Wallop.

Good evening.

Having had a restless night, as hubby was so good through the night. We were disturbed once more at around 7am, by a crash, bang wallop on the roof above our heads. My first thought was a duck. So when I climbed out of the boat to walk P, I was not surprised to see a Mallard lying on the roof. We reckon she had probably landed heavily on the boat, to get away from an randy Drake. On closer inspection, I noticed that she was in fact limping. What I did not know was the injury caused by landing on the roof heavily or had she got this injury somewhere else. The decision was taken, to leave her be and just keep an eye on her. If she became distress or her limp got worse, we were prepared to call wither the RSPCA or the local wildlife rescue. She stayed put for most of the morning, but close to lunchtime, she walked to the edge of the roof and leapt off. Her limp did not look to bad, so hopefully she will be fine. I will keep an eye open for her over the next few days.

  1. I get woken up some mornings by Crows on my roof. I sleep in a room under the eaves so there's no loft to deaden the noise, and they don't 'arf stamp about!

  2. It amazes me that birds are not that heavy and yet they sound like they are wearing hob nailed boots when they walk around on the roof. LOL
