Duck travels: Dover Western Ducks

They say that when the weather gets hot people flock to the coast. Well, that seems to be true for ducks too!

A small flock of assorted birds headed near the Western Docks at Dover to get some cooling sea air and, for those that will take part in the Rotary Club of Canterbury’s fundraising Annual Duck Race in September, there was a chance to do some training in different conditions.

The ‘gaggle’ included Seafarer Duck (who, with some nautical eggs-perience, was overseeing the training) and the three ducks that had gone to Lanzarote for training earlier in the year (see our previous story). Lord Nelson Duck had joined them en route from Trafalgar.

The heat and eggs-ercise left them all eggs-hausted – so they retired later for some liquid refreshment, a soothing bath and a restful sleep.
