Courtesy of a link at Dustbury, I was amused to come across this video clip of a flock of ducks, all rescued from a squalid existence, being introduced to a pond for the first time. Clearly, swimming doesn't come instinctively to them - they have to be herded into the water before they discover that it's rather nice to get wet! The comments from a frustrated duck-herder made me laugh . . .
The full story behind the ducks' rescue may be found here.
