Onlookers were left astonished by the sight.

“Not something you see everyday," Jubb wrote on Facebook when she shared the video on Thursday.

Meanwhile, in Matlock, Derbyshire, 25-year-old Beth Windle shared images of ducks perched on the arms of submerged benches and swimming up to nibble at bushes now within their reach at her local park.

“The flooding is the most severe that I've known it, in my 25 years living here," the illustrator told the PA news agency.

“The ducks were probably very happy now that they've gained a new height advantage."

In a later tweet she posted: “Update on the ducks…it's their home now."

In Lincoln, Chelsea Foster said she was “shocked" to see swans swim up to the wall at the bottom of her garden from an overflowing River Witham.

“I didn't realize how high the water actually was until I went out and there was a group of them right next to my wall, they were that close I could touch them," the 23-year-old told PA.

“Outside my wall we had a little island area where we could sit and feed the ducks, now you can't even see it."

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
