Bertha's Babies Released Soon

 The 9 ducklings taken into care by the River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust prior to the big Bertha flood last month, will soon be released back into the river. 

They should be capable of flight in a couple of weeks, and therefore more likely to survive any predator attacks. 

Proper care has ensured their good health and growth, and happily 5 of them are females which will go some way to offsetting the predominance of male ducks.
