Rescued Ducklings At Home

Regular viewers may recall the rescue of 8 ducklings in early May by teenagers Haley and Alex from Queenspark. The Mother duck had been killed and the 8 ducklings were only a couple of days old at the time. 

After 9 weeks with me and Disco the foster Mum, they were returned to the river with 15 others a few weeks ago.

Tonight I was heartened to see the 8 flying towards me at the Swans island, landing in the moat looking for a feed.  It was only 30 yards from where they were first picked up as 2 day old ducklings. 

Great to see them healthy, flying and thriving, back home where their Mother brought them in early May, she may have died but her offspring all survived !
