#008 duke the mallard


"Duke is a duck about town. He is a wild but distinctly urban drake with a slicked-back wet-look comb-over and brightly coloured trousers. Despite his caddish looks, he’s never short of a new duck to fall for his classic good looks and is always to be found waddling round his local city’s parks with his latest sweetheart on his wing. He will read her mediocre love-poetry while they patiently wait for everyone’s children to go home, so they can take their turn on the merry-go-round. Then he’ll treat her to an ice-cream, and wait for the sun to go down to make his move." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
