Watch: 5,000 ducklings rush to pond for first ever swim
Watch as 5000 ducklings go for their first ever swim and realise that water is really all it is quacked up to be.
It is a veritable parade of ducks as dozens of people look in amazement.
An annual tradition in Taizhou in China, the birds are taken to a local feeding pond en masse by a single worker.
Footage of the event shows many onlookers exclaiming in delight at the unusual sight – with one child stamping his feet impatiently near the little birds, as his parents laugh.
Finally, the ducklings reach their destination, nearly a half a mile from where they are raised, and swim slowly in the pond .
