Just a puff of wind and I’m sure this snoozing duck will fall over

Are you a ‘elder duck’ if you have a grey beak? is a yellow beak a sign of youth and virility?  They weren’t too phased by me observations, they just toddled off across the field when they had enough, taking the snoozing duck with them.

The hills in the distance were still snow covered

Snow and ice 

and as likely as not it was busy up there.
