every morning when walking the dogs, we also take stale bread, or bread left by shashlik revellers and feed the ducks. there is one place where they congregate, the ducks, and we can hear their noise from quite far away.
also,along the bank there are always ducks and we feed them as well.
today (easter monday) there was not a single one.
and from the looks at the pictures one does not have to guess why not.
wonder what happened. since there is oil and debris together, i would assume that the ice at the -rechnoy vokzal- has cracked, or been broken by icebreakers. (cruise season starts soon. when i was working on the ships we were allowed only to go in convoy,with an ice breaker up front... it was the 6th of May...)

and now all the accumulated gunk is floating downriver...

Yes, why not, I am sure they would enjoy a visit to Lefortovo which offers far superior facilities to the prisons in the North! ;)
