The powers that be have fenced off the duck pond and surrounded it with shrubbery. Not so handy for us bird watchers; once the shrubs have leafed out, we will have to stand on picnic tables to see the birds. But the ducks seem pleased, and the reedy island in the centre will be a better nesting site than before. More private, and with less floating trash, I think.
