Everyone needs a drinking buddy – but Barrie Hayman has found his in the unlikely form of his pet duck.
Barrie, 67, likes to pop down to his local with his pet Star, the Indian runner duck he adopted two years ago when he found him orphaned just days old.
The pair are now inseparable – Star follows Barrie to the shops and patiently waits in the entrance of the local Tesco as he gets his groceries.
And when Barrie fancies a pint at the Old Court House Inn the duck goes with him – and enjoys a sip of beer. . .
