This is the moment a flock of ducks brought traffic to a standstill as they slowly waddled across a zebra crossing in south east London.
Up to 20 ducks can seen walking in single file in footage recorded just south of Greenwich Park.
They can be seen joining a larger group of ducks which had gathered on Blackheath on the other side of the road.

Passersby can be seen stopping to film the amusing moment as cars were forced to wait several minutes.
Aisling Roche-Morris, a NHS Senior Clinical Psychologist, filmed the moment while out cycling on the morning of August 28.
She tweeted: ‘Saturday morning traffic jam,’ with one person replying: ‘They sure are taking their leisurely time, aren’t they?’.
Another joked: ‘Who do they think they are?
‘No respect for tax-paying motorists. Bloody marvellous behaviour.’
While another said: ‘On the way to Lewisham hospital with the misses in labour.
‘But it’s cool, it’s cool…’
One twitter user described the moment as both ‘cute and frustrating’ while another simply branded it ‘delightful.’
It comes after a family of ducks had to be ushered out of a university library after wandering in from the street in September last year.
Five ducklings followed their mother through an open door and under the security gates into the University of Nottingham’s George Green Library.
The birds enjoyed a ‘calm and unflustered’ walk around the aisles of books before being safely escorted out of the building by a librarian.
