Duke On The Mend

Paid a visit to Duke up river this morning, this is the 6th day since he stopped eating.

                           I was delighted to see him alert and perked up at my visit, he moved towards me which in itself was a good sign - usually moves away if feeling unwell. He even ate a few small pieces of  wholemeal before moving to the other bank to preen . He has also begun to moult about a week after Penny started. I am hoping he develops an immunity to whatever illness has hit him. I do suspect the sewerage outfall just off the east beach where he was the day before falling ill !
