Eight Released

After 2 months Trust care and attention, the brood of 8 were released this morning. 

This makes 51 ducklings to date released back to the river this season. The mother of this brood is nesting again, so I left them in the safest spot I could find this morning - directly under the dead crow hanging from a tree.

They should be capable of flight in a matter of days and have the safety of numbers around them. 
The Trust thanks Susan Hume for her time and use of her car to help with the release this morning.
