Flora and fauna in Vernon Park

The fountain at the ornamental pond in Vernon Park may not be playing but the ducks are.

A female mallard and one of her ducklings can be seen here swimming around the blue flag iris.

Three mallard drakes watch from the perimeter wall.

Meanwhile moorhens try to hide amongst the water lilies.
