Bad for ducks

It's been another scorchio day, but one that threatens to be bad for ducks (amongst others).

Partly this is because storms are forecast with lightning bolts that could turn these ducks crispy enough for pancakes, spring onions and cucumber etc as per Baydog's suggestion.

Mostly this is because of smog, which is a real problem with London's traffic and the heat. EU pollution rules allow 35 bad days a year and Marylebone Road has already had 36.

So the Government has issued a warning that ducks should do their 8 km run first thing in the morning, then stay in doing more work until get totally cheesed off, make a cup of tea, toast some hot cross buns and put their feet up to read a good book.

I might have paraphrased, but that was the gist.

Happy Easter and St. George's Day!
