Hats Off To Haley

Local residents came to the fore today in helping to rescue yet another 8 ducklings.

Young teenager Haley from Queenspark, phoned the SSPCA when she spotted what looked like abandoned ducklings at the riverside. It transpired that their Mother was killed and the Ducklings were in grave danger of being eaten by predators. Haley and her friend got into the riverside, and with some help managed to capture all 8 ducklings. 

The ducklings are now under the care of the Trust and have been joined by the other 8 ducklings rescued yesterday from the beach, all of them are only a couple of days old and will grow up as the one family. All of them will be returned to the river when around 9 weeks old and fledged. The Trust is grateful for the fine spirited residents who did all they could to ensure the survival of these cute little ducklings, well done ! Short movie clip below.

It was a pleasure. I was a bit sceptical at first but finally managed to net 8 ducklings with the help of a couple of herders. :)
