11/14/05 10:42 pm - is it just me?
or is it perhaps the "time of the season"?
crossing the canal by moor lane bridge, i looked over the parapet to see a mostly white & black duck slowly turning around and around in small circles gently meandering this way and that, with its head tucked firmly under its wing, exactly as though it was asleep - yet one webbed foot was giving a occasional, leisurely paddle-stroke...
which leaves me wondering,
do ducks really "sleep-paddle"?
