For the last couple of weeks the phrase ‘lovely weather – if you are a duck’ has been muttered all too frequently. This led our Duck Observation and Amusement Team (Nicest Bit of the Canal Branch) to wonder what ducks actually do all day?
Our Duck Observation and Amusement Team (Nicest Bit of the Canal Branch) couldn’t be bothered to go and find out so it was fortunate that local resident Cathryn Rees volunteered to go and have a look.
So here, for the first time in Wapping, is the reality of a ducks life documented for the world to see.
As you can see this duck, and its duck chum, spends its whole day sitting in a particular corner of a particular reed bed.
Occasionally it moves to get some bread from a passing resident, but generally it just can’t be bothered.
Thanks to Cathryn Rees for risking life and limb to obtain these unique photographs.
Next week – another duck.
