Standard Life DucksBy Alexander Lawrie

A PROUD mother duck and her 10 fluffy ducklings have adopted a £20 million refurbished office block as their new home.

The feathered family have settled down at the former Standard Life building in Edinburgh’s Canonmills.

The mallard and her brood of ducklings have made their nest within the building’s unique rooftop garden making them the official first tenants of the state-of-the-art offices in the city’s capital.

Tanfield’s extensive refurbishment has just been completed and provides up to 190,000 sq ft of stunning new office space in the city.

The building will be open for public viewing during Edinburgh’s Doors Open days on 26th & 27th September.
