Odd? Nah, that sort of thing is the norm in Holland. Right, Rick?
Observe: "Rather startled, I watched this scene from close quarters behind the window until 19.10 hours during which time (75 minutes) I made some photographs and the mallard almost continuously copulated his dead congener. He dismounted only twice, stayed near the dead duck and picked the neck and the side of the head before mounting again. The first break (at 18.29 hours) lasted three minutes and the second break (at 18.45 hours) lasted less than a minute. At 19.12 hours, I disturbed this cruel scene."
He watched, at close quarters, took pictures, then
'disturbed this cruel scene'. After 75 feckin' minutes! And you say the English are perverted.
