Liverpool Duck Trail

If you follow me on Twitter, you will know that on Wednesday and Thursday I was in Liverpool with my boyfriend. We had a lovely couple of days and did a few things-went for tea (more on that in another post!!) visited a museum, went into a few shops and drank a LOT of tea. We also chilled out in our hotel room and watched Pride on DVD, and I got some blogging done. One thing I really wanted to tell you all about, though, is my favourite thing we did, and the thing that we spent the most time on-the Liverpool Duck Trail.

Twenty painted ducks have been placed in the city for people to find. Each duck is sponsored by a company to raise money for Macmillan, and each duck is themed around something Liverpool is famous for. I started out just wandering around looking for them, and on Wednesday I found seven. BUT then I got stuck and took to Twitter for help. I found that there’s an account for the duck trail, and I found others’ tweets, hints and tips (and a map of the Ducks’ locations) from that. Then I sat down with a cuppa and planned which ducks to find first, then used Siri to help me navigate around them. What would we do without technology!?

Throughout the two days I got very stressed as I didn’t know which ducks I had and which I didn’t (this was mainly down to my stupidity at not realising the name and number of the duck was on the side of each plinth!) eventually, with help from twitter and instagram where people had labelled their duck photos, and by the process of elimination and sheer determination, we found all of the ducks!

Here they are, in number order (not in the order I found them as I can’t remember that order!)

1: Porter Duck


2: Railway Duck


3: Space Duck


4: Fire Engine Duck


5: Doctor Duck


6: Education Duck


7: Heritage Duck


8: Pop Duck


9: Aintree Duck


10: Airport Duck


11: Beatles Duck


12: Construction Duck


13: Everton Duck


14: Liverpool Duck


15: Park Duck


16: Toy Duck


17: Legal Duck


18: Roadie Duck


19: Steamboat Duck


20: Waterfront Duck


21: Pirate Duck


Now, the observant of my readers will have noticed that we found twenty one out of twenty ducks-because number twenty one is a spare duck that just seems to be floating around!

We really enjoyed the duck trail and I’d recommend that if you are in or around the Liverpool area you go and do the duck trail. Do let me know how you get on!

    I find a few of these quite scary (I think it’s their beaks) I think I have been playing a bit too much five nights at Freddie’s. Great post though x

    Heritage duck is by far my favourite! I did something like this recently in London with the Shaun the Sheep trail 🙂

      They’ve only been there a couple of weeks I think. Eventually they will be moved and there’ll just be a few left, like the Lambananas. (They are so cool too, I also had Lambanana selfies) x
