    Those original eight kids had eight kids, and so on, and so on, well you get the idea.

  5. Well, they're not as big as the Canadian Geese we get over here, but I'm not an expert. As has been said, at least they're not swans. Vicious beasts.

  6. Who cares - they look great and so long as they know what they are I guess it doesn't matter!

  12. Ducks, definitely. Haven't you heard Mancunians call each other "duck" as a term of affection?

    I'll bill you later for the answer.

    (Sorry. That wasn't a great pun, but I was just winging it. But, what more can you expect on the web?)

  15. You know, whereas I love the wooden ducks (or is it geese?), it's their shadows that catch me. That was th first thing I noticed, their little shadows on the pavement.
