Dogs, Ducks and the Strensham Court Mews "Lake"
We have been fighting a severe duck weed and algae infestation of our "Lake".
Richie Sayers has led the project involving financial commitment as well as a huge amount
of time and physical effort to clear and restore it.
A key part of keeping it clear has been to purchase families of domesticated ducks that
have had their wings clipped so they cannot fly away. Again Richie has provided the
leadership on this and he and Teresa have been looking after and settling them into their
new home successfully.
There have been a couple of instances where unaccompanied dogs have come from the woods and
“worried” the ducks, chasing and barking at them. The ducks are tame and defenceless and if
Teresa had not intervened they might have been harmed and not able to make it to the water
and only just escape.
We would be very grateful if our neighbours and friends in the village who walk dogs in the
woods could try to stop them running through to the lake area and worrying or attacking the
ducks as they are defenceless and vulnerable. We would very much appreciate cooperation and
support with this and owners being aware and if necessary, putting their dogs on leads when
they are in the lake area.
