A few weeks ago, Layla Duck was found in Lealholm in North Yorkshire by members of the Crown Biker MCC. The group, which has 31 members was formed 3 1/2 years ago in Redcar, Cleveland with the intention of riding from their base to pubs with Crown in their names whilst raising money for Maxis Mates, a charity that rehomes dogs. Layla looks like she is having fun, on a double mission to help people and their best friends.
Well, not the actual planet but our own map of it is very yellow. Now covering 95 countries, that’s half of the countries in the world. I thought we had a new country this week when a duck in South Korea was logged, but it is actually the second duck to be logged there.
I find shopping malls are a good place, especially cafes with outside tables where a duck can be sneakily left as I quickly make my escape. It doesn’t always work and I have been chased down the street by wait staff on occasion.
This week amongst the ducks logged was Granville. Found and adopted by Eve, Granville was found hiding inside a vending machine in Billingham Forum near Stockton-On-Tees. That’s inventive.
