Trust To The Rescue.

The River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust again proved it's worth this afternoon with a Duck rescue.
Having been informed by Susan a concerned local, that a Mother duck with 11 ducklings was trapped under the wire mesh at the Merryton bridge. I phoned our Trust Secretary Morag who lives overlooking the bridge if she could check out the situation. Intrepid as always, she discovered that the mother duck was indeed trapped under the bridge wire retaining mesh, with the 11 ducklings huddled nearby.

With the help of yet another Trust member Hansel, who promptly got out his ladder and lowered it down to the riverside. Morag was able to climb down and free the Mother duck who re-joined her ducklings, Trust Mission accomplished !
