    Reports on the migration of the ducks and aquatic birds of St James's Park to several metropolitan locations, including a 'charming little watering place' provided for them by William J Hooker at Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew. Discusses visitors' enjoyment of the birds arising from the fact that the birds have been so 'wonderfully improved since they have been billing and Kewing in the country'.
