So why does this duck quack when flourescent light is switched off then?

Well now I have a big plastic duck at home and when somebody walks past it it quacks and we have to put a bit of blu-tack in it to stop it from doing it. And it sits under a table beside a sofa but if somebody switches off the fluorescent lights in the kitchen it quacks only when you switch them off and even with the blu-tack in its mouth when it wouldn't quack if someone walked past it. So what's going on here about this? Anybody able to tell me more about what is happening around here then?
