Once you have read
the instructions below, be sure to report
your duck find.
I've found a duck.
Well, you've taken
the first step and logged on to this site.
I found a duck is
the first global duck race happening across the face of the earth
and across the web. 500 ducks have been deposited across London,
each duck has the website address around its neck and a unique
ID number ( DUC001 through to DUC500 ) but you know a lot of this
500 people have now
hopefully picked up ducks and are, at some point, reading this.
So now what?
The idea is to see
how far the ducks travel and how fast. If you are outside the
UK, it would be ideal if you could take a photograph showing the
duck and a signpost/famous landmark in the background to show
where you are. We also need you to notify us as to the colour
of the neck tag and the colour of the ID number sticker in order
to verify the duck's identity. If you don't have access to a scanner
or digital camera, we will accept these reports which will be
listed as unsubstantiated by clear photo. (This also goes for
any vague or unclear photographs or obvious looking Photoshop

After that, the last
step is to place the duck back in the wild. Ideally, if you are
travelling on a long distance trip then take it with you or pass
it on to anyone you know may be travelling away. Failing that,
just take it to work and pass it on. Then it's time to report
your duck find.
Each duck has its own
page where its current progress/location/speed etc can be followed
as and when the information comes in. That's it, report your duck
and pass it on. Hurry, this is a race you know!
Above are the new instructions
for the online report. Just for amusements sake, we still have
the old guide here: interactive
guide in Flash (Do not use this as instructions though, all
duck reporting now happens online here)
