I have just been reading about Edwina the mallard duck that was rescued by a family 22 years ago when the duckling was being attacked by other ducklings.The family from Hampshire, rescued the duckling and when they tried to return her to the wild she followed them home, so it sounds like she enjoyed living with the family, so much so she has been with them for 22 years until she passed away on Monday.
Edwina sounds like she was a real character and would even drink tea for her breakfast!
