A duck has been found in the middle of a housing estate in Suffolk.
The white drake caused a flap when he sat down in the road in the Teesdale housing estate in Carlton Colville, Lowestoft last week.
Animal loving residents managed to usher him in a greenhouse and alerted the RSPCA.
“It was very odd place to find a duck. He was just sitting in the road in the wet weather and a local cat was eyeing him up.
“He was tame so the locals rounded him up and popped him in a greenhouse until we collected him.
“It’s a bit of a mystery how he got there. He may be someone’s escaped pet or he may have been abandoned.”
Posters have been put up in the local area in a bid to find the duck's owners.
The animal will be put up for rehoming if no-one comes forward.
