Friday 10 Jan 2014: Strange procession at All Souls College
Every 100 years, usually on January 14, there is a procession in All Souls College, Oxford to commemorate the chase after a huge wild duck which flew from a drain during 15th-Century building works. Participants are the college fellows carrying torches and singing the Mallard Song. The last Mallard ceremony was in 2001.
