What’s up, Duck?

Duck Holiday is a well-travelled type. One of Europe’s leading mallard intellectuals, the polyglot duck is able to quack in thirty European languages.

Naturally enough, Duck Holiday likes scenic rivers and lakes, but is also a lover of culture, from literature (J G Mallard) to art (Joseph Mallard William Turner). His favourite river in Europe is the Danube and he particularly takes pleasure in relaxing at Lake Balaton as well as visiting friends and relatives around the world.

He also enjoys good food and is partial to a glass of oatmeal stout. An all-round sportsduck, he enjoys swimming, water-skiing, duckball and cricket, though he accepts that his batting is a weakness.

Duck Holiday likes music, too. His favourite bands are Ducks Deluxe, Duck To Feelgood (‘Duck in the Night’) and, of course, Half Man Half Duck.
