Ducking hell!

I moved apartment a couple of weeks ago and now live on the gloriously named “Heroes of Stalingrad Street” with some fantastic views across the river Dnieper.

Taking half an hour yesterday afternoon I thought I would go and feed the ducks that I can see from my window.

I have never met such a frightened bunch of ducks in my life. Why won’t you come and eat this flammin’ bread that I’m hurling in to the river?

Then I realised; ducks are caught and eaten by the local human population and see humans as a source of food and death. The poor little buggers thought I was going to catch them and wring their little ducky necks.
