Creeping out in the dark the other day, as one does, the ducks on the river were giving it big licks in the quacking department. What that means I know not. I’m not very fluent in duck, but I think they were Mallard. What does his matter? Well, we hear, ha, or I hear, all the time, about animals and their vision. What they can see, what colours, or not and so on.

But, here’s a thing. Nobody talks much, in duck talk or any other talk, about those aforementioned dyucks seeing in the dark. Maybe the theories have gone down the Swanney?
