Ducks … they’re one of the major attractions of Lake Garda and are with us all year around, having found the climate warm enough for them to avoid the long winter haul to the south. Our “wild” variety are mallards and they’ve sometime mixed with domestic ducks creating some interesting new liveries. This time of the year, spring, is always fun where ducks are concerned. The males begin to search out their ladies love stalking the poor dears in groups until she gets exasperated and flies off with a “qua, qua, qua” that sounds almost like a disdainful laugh. By June though the couples will have been formed and the chicks hatched. The tourists arrive with their children, delighted by the families of ducks scooting along the beach and sand.
