Somebody’s Watching Me
For a long time I’ve had a theory about ducks and recently I conducted a scientific investigation into their innate ability to seek out those who have food in their possession.
First I needed to find a nice peaceful place to stop for morning tea, with a lake and picnic tables and not a duck to be seen.
As I expected, it didn’t take long before a duck appeared out of nowhere.
He was acting very nonchalantly but I observed that his TGHF radar was switched on. *
In a flash two more ducks arrived on the scene.
The word was out on the FFH duck-network. *
And before I knew it, I was completely surrounded by hungry ducks who were behaving as if they hadn’t seen any food for weeks!
My suspicions were confirmed. Ducks all over the world spend their days waiting for unsuspecting tourists, watching for the first Scotch Finger biscuit to come out of the packet and preparing to advance and attack. It’s a highly organised offensive and only those with paid up membership of HDU can participate. *
And if you’re wondering if I shared my biscuits, the answer is YES! I felt like a sitting duck surrounded by all those feathered food warriors.
I nearly went quackers!
