Ducks ducks ducks

Yesterday I took my camera along to the the twentieth Stockbridge Duck Race on the Water of Leith. Exactly 2008 numbered ducks were sold in aid of local charities, and at 3pm they were thrown off a bridge where they all raced for the finishing line, a few hundred metres along the river. More photos of the event, and the 'Duck Wardens' whose task it was to shepherd the ducks along, are here.

It's a bit tragic looking. Here these unfledged ducklings have been mercilessly flung from high on a bridge, and not one survived to ride the race upright and fully conscious. tsk-tsk-tsk
