    TSR should organise a duck race with all the university names on to settle once and for all which university is best.

    I guess no data has been submitted for Bath there are loads of ducks, not only by the massive lake but they sometimes wander over to accommodations as well!

    Do seagulls count as ducks? Because if they do Brighton or Sussex wins hands down. Also it it'd have to be settled with a seagull chip fight or something rather than a race.

    Or a new ranking: Top UK universities with the most evil, lunch stealing ASBO sea birds.

    Duck:

    A "duck" is a bird that goes on water (for example, a duck, goose, seagull or moorhen). There are many types and varieties of duck, all of which should be counted. Birds such as pigeons, which do not go on water, are not "ducks".

    Although density wise how much of the sea do you count in the water measure?

    Hull also has shedloads of ducks. Especially in winter the park gets full of geese.

    That would mean that the flamingo, the swan, the pelican, the stork and the heron are all ducks. :no:
