Faith's Babies Return To The Wild
After the tragic demise of Faith, the duck that lost it's bill to an Otter, her offspring were returned to the river today. She had 3 surviving ducklings, I reared alongside 4 motherless ones for the past 7 weeks, it was time to introduce them to the other young ducks on the river.
One of them is a female, so hopefully Faith will live on !
Meanwhile on the way home I discovered yet another injured pigeon wandering out of the Candy cabin on the brae. It appears to be a young one that may have been hit by a car, right wing drooping but not broken.
I will give it some TLC for a few days and see how it goes.
