Friday The Thirteenth

Saturday 14th April 2012.
Kings Bromley Marina.

Yesterday, Friday the thirteenth was nearly an unlucky day for one of the female ducks, after being attacked by four drakes she was left half submerged and lifeless under a jetty, Sue Poynton the office manager spotted what had happened and managed to reach down under the jetty, drag her out by one of her legs then wrapped the poor creature in a towel, as Sue has dogs she came and knocked on our boat and asked if we would have a go at resuscitation, the duck was very cold, soaked with hardly any sign of movement

After twenty minutes with a hair drier there was a bit more movement and another hour wrapped in warm towels saw a big improvement, she could now stand up and flap her wings, eventually we placed her on the grass at the side of the boat and after another ten minutes grooming she entered the water and swam off.

Hair Dryer Treatment.

Where am I.

Warmed up and ready to go.
