Funds to be raised following yellow duck mystery

Yellow ducks are popping up on fences around Fraserburgh and the surrounding area.
Yellow ducks are popping up on fences around Fraserburgh and the surrounding area.

Over the last few weeks yellow ducks have been appearing on fence posts in the rural areas around Fraserburgh.

A Facebook page ‘Save Fraserburgh’s Yellow Ducks’ has even been set up when it emerged that some of the ducks were being taken down from their fence post perches.

The Facebook page now has over 260 followers and over 3,000 people have looked at the pictures of the ducks on the page.

Now the quackers craze has taken a new twist.

One hundred yellow ducks are now on sale at R&S Dygas on Broad Street to be ‘released into the wild’. They cost £1 and, as they have been donated, all the money will be given to the Willows Animal Sanctuary.

Any unsold ducks will be for sale on the Fraserburgh Area Tourism Group stall at Super Saturday on May 9.

Each duck comes with some instructions:

“Please give your duck a name. Then nail it to a fence post of your choosing (we know it sounds cruel but be assured the duck is not hurt at all. Take a photo of your duck (include yourself or anyone else in the photo if you want) and post it together with the location on the Save Fraserburgh’s Yellow Duck Facebook page. Finally tell everyone you know on social media where they can find the picture.”
