Manderin duck at the loose

On a wing and a prayer: Owner searches for escaped Mandarin duck at Newmarket's Fairy Lake.
Please don't feed Eddie, owner asks duck's admirers

Eddie, a beautiful escaped Mandarin duck, has been making quite a splash at Fairy Lake for the last couple of weeks.

But while his owner, Tracey Harpley, understands why the gorgeous bird is attracting lots of attention, she is pleading with people not to feed Eddie.

The more people feed the duck, the less likely he is to allow himself to be caught and returned home to his mate, Wilma.

There is a lot more in Lisa's news report, but just for short. the owner is afraid when we get freezing weather again and the ducks might take off and Eddie with them that she's going to loose him for sure.
If we get an update, I'll let all of you know.

Such beautiful ducks, I sure wish the owner gets it back. Wilma will be missing her partner too.

Beautiful little duck. We have a Mandarin duck in a pond near by, here in the U.K. it could have a similar story to Eddie.

Eddie is a bit of a tear away isn't he, hope he returns to Wilma soon and stays at home and doesn't wander off again.

A beautiful duck.
(In our city it`s forbidden to feed the ducks and geeses.)
