The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, has introduced an incentive for the country's native population of wood ducks to breed in greater numbers. He wants to personally run up and down the banks of the River Thames River blowing a duck whistle to encourage the male birds, or drakes, to find a suitable partner to mate with.
Boris has had a life-long obsession with wood ducks, and once camped out to watch the courtship of ducks in his local area.
People are suggesting that, with the country in the grip of a pandemic, Mr Johnson should change his priorities. However, Boris believes he is doing a great thing for the country and his beloved wood ducks.
