Glebe Road Rescue

Thanks to Mr and Mrs Cameron of Glebe Road, I was able to help rescue a mother duck and her 9 ducklings today.

This is the second brood that has come from this area, and seems a favoured spot to nest by some ducks.

Quick thinking by Mr and Mrs Cameron by providing water and food on their patio for the mother and her brood, then contacting me has helped save this fortunate duck family. The previous mother from this area was run over trying to cross King street some weeks ago, a fate this Mother has been spared.

After a donation from Mr and Mrs Cameron to provide for the ducklings feed and care for the next few weeks,  the River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust is happy to grant them a years Membership. The duck family will be released back to the river when it is safe to do so. This Mother duck is known to me and is one of our elder ladies. 

After a quick check of her new facilities she had a bath and allowed the ducklings to enjoy their new temporary home.
