Default Re: "Duck" telephone

I've found a stray strand of wire that was shorting out two contacts of the "hook" switch. Having removed that short, everything now seems to be working as it should - no buzzing, and only quacks when rung.

I think, however, that I shall tidy up the wiring before reassembly, as it would be all too easy for adjacent wires to touch each other as it stands.
