11,734 ducks have now been logged onto our world map in 104 of the world’s 198 countries. This month, September, 2019, a lovely duck called Neptune twenty paid a visit to the tiny St Agnes Primary School on the Isles of Scilly. Neptune is being loved and well looked after by the school’s six pupils.
Harleigh found Brazil Nut Duck on a park bench in Barnstaple High Street, Devon and commented on the coincidence of finding him at this time. Harleigh says “So thankful. Ducks are my favoirite and my work team are all going to give blood next month. Such an amaing cause and so strange that we have this planned”. I hope Brazil Nut becomes Harleigh’s lucky duck.
This month also, one of our prolific duck makers, Sue (I think from North Yorkshire) left a whole extended family of ducks, 21 logged so far, at the Staithes Arts and Heritage Festival. Well done Sue on spreading the word about life saving organ donation.
Shadia found Sunnie duck at Rochester Cathedral near the Statue of the Knife Angel. I’d not heard of this statue so I googled it (as you do). The Knife Angel is recognised as the National Monument against violence and aggression and is made from 100,000 weapons surrendered and confiscated in 2016. After it leaves Rochester at the end of September it will be shown at Derby.
