Here, Water Wardens remove
ducks from the Water of Leith at the end of the race. The netting
that prevented the ducks from travelling further down the Water of Leith
can be seen in the background.
There were over 2,000 plastic
ducks in the race.
Last year (2007) the netting
failed to catch the ducks and about 1,000 ducks escaped, last seen
floating down the water towards Leith.
