A south Devon town could be in danger of losing its entire population of prized Muscovy ducks.

There are just half a dozen of the birds left at Buckfastleigh`s Millennium Green after an outbreak of so called "duck plague" over the summer and concerns over possible poaching. The remaining birds are believed to be in good health.
