Ducks can sleep with one eye open to keep them safe from predators! And they have 3 eyelids!

At Occombe you’ll see two breeds of duck – Indian runner and khaki Campbells. Runner ducks stand upright like penguins. Khaki Campbells are said to be named because the colour of their feathers is like the British army uniform. See them on the Animal Paddocks Trail and swimming in their duck pond.

At the moment you can also see a ‘brood’ of the cutest ducklings in the Animal Encounters Barn.
