Trust Still Busy

Although late in the hatching season the Trust is still busy looking after the birds.

Currently caring for a mother duck and her 11 ducklings, also 8 ducklings without the mother. 

                   In addition the white duck, wood pigeon, and bantam call hybrid duck, and a young Herring gull injured by a car.

                                 I also have 5 bantam call duck eggs in the incubator, as potential mates for the lone bantam hybrid. 

Having candled them a few day ago they are alive and well at this early stage.   So far this season the trust has cared for 61 ducklings, this is the greatest annual amount since the formation of the trust three and half years ago.
