Hiro-san continued his tour of England. From a young boy he was a fan of Winnie the Pooh so decided to take a trip down to Hartfield in the beautiful Ashdown Forest in East Sussex. As a child he read all the Winnie the Pooh books by A.A. Milne. When Winnie the Pooh came with his friends they would take a twig from the forest floor and drop them from one side of the bridge and then rush to the other side to see who’s twig would come out from beneath the bridge first. When Hiro-san tried to play he found a little duck collecting the twigs so it could make a next!
Hiro-san was happy though. It was spring and the ducks needed twigs to build a nest for their eggs to hatch.
Do you know the Japanese word for duck? It’s “ahiru” – アヒル.
