I never knew his real name, but Funny Duck was a good friend of mine. He was the only duck who would feed from my hand, which he did day after day for a year and a half. He was blind in one eye, and had developed a special way of swimming so as to bring the good eye into the best position for all round sight. You can just see here his characteristically lopsided way of swimming. His courage, endeavour and spirit were inspiring, and it was desperately sad to see him on his last night in the world, at the beginning of April 2011. Before then, however, he did at least and at last finally get to mate. I can't pretend it was a romantic encounter, more a mass brawl, but he initiated it, she consented, and he fulfilled part of his destiny. I miss him.
