This gorgeous photo is of baby Goldeneye ducks leaving their nest for the first time to go out into the big wide world. Isn’t it adorable?
And just like the baby ducklings in the photo, flocks of little yellow ducks are launching themselves into the big wide world too!
Yesterday we added our 7th country to the world map after little Nini was found in Germany. Nini was created by one of the members of our Ravelry group and left at a small café at the corner of a street in Berlin. A few hours later she was reported to us as found with a lovely message from her delighted new owner.
The other countries where ducks have been reported as found are: UK, USA, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand and Australia. We also know that ducks have been left in other countries including Ireland, Norway and Abu Dhabi and have volunteers working away in South Africa, Philippines and Serbia.
Meanwhile duck tags are now available in German and will soon be available in Chinese, Russian, French, Dutch, Danish, Spanish and Italian. A huge thank you to all those who have kindly offered to translate the tags and sections of the website so that this project can reach more people.
I’ll leave you with one of my favourite photos which is of little Quacky enjoying a snooze in the sunshine on Bournemouth beach, UK!
