Whilst moored here on the only bit of the Derby canal in water, I have certainly been kept entertained by the Drakes trying to woe the females. Well I should say one female which initially was with her mate until the batchelor boys arrived. Then all hell let loose. Remind me never to come back on this earth as a female duck!
|Mr and Mrs....a happy couple at first!|
|The happy couple nuptials|
|Until another Drake arrived and muscled in|
|Shes under there somewhere.|
|Thankfully she escaped as her partners got hold of the interloper|
|A right barney ensued|
|And a clap from the victor|
