Hi ....
I woke to find a new friend in my backyard this morning
Can anyone tell me what sort of duck it is and roughly how old?
It is very timid and stays few metres away when i go near him/her but when I was filling a wading pool with water for it, it did come up and drink but was very cautious. It's been in my yard all day and looks like he is settling in

Thanks for the replies...
Would it be safe roaming my yard or should i be concerned if a cat enter the yard at night? also what is a good way to gain her trust? she still keeps her distance.
Ive been feeding her grapes,cucumber and broccoli so far

A cat can definitely be a danger.
As far as trust, time and treats. Try thawing some frozen peas for her. My ducks love them. Even the more skidish duck will eat out of my hand. Sounds like you are getting attached. Ducks are great pets. :)
