This friendly Mallard duck must have thought we were a soft touch. It actually flew on board while we were still mobile and proceeded to peck at the windscreen wipers ! We were on our way to rescue the white launch in the picture.
He obviously didn’t know a port buoy from a starboard buoy at this rather tricky and shallow passage through Loch Oich which is part of the Caledonian canal. He had gone aground and was stuck well and truly ! We actually were reimbursed by his hire company to the tune of £20
for diesel used. We had to double back on our tracks by about six miles.
