Back To The Wild

After 7 weeks in the safety of the Aviary, the Harbour street rescued brood is now back in the wild. 

With the help of Trust member George Stephen we released them near the Merryton bridge.

Blondie the mother duck took them safely downstream and kept them at a safe distance from the other ducks until they get used to the river.

It was a successful release, and at least 5 of the 9 ducklings are females which helps with  the numbers.

 They should be capable of flight within a week, so hopefully they will be OK.
