Doris Ducklings D - Day

After 8 weeks care, Doris and her Ducklings have been released back to the wild. 

Conditions were ideal for a successful release, with warm sunshine, Spring tides, and Doris's leg healed even better than I had ever hoped ! 

The spring tides for the coming week will allow her to access the banks more easily, also show her ducklings the whole length of the tidal reaches.

 My thanks to Martin our Trust chairman for the transport to the riverside. Doris is currently moulting she is the one with the white feathers showing on her back. 2 Short videos below, one the day before release - noisy female excitement with Doris active exiting the pool.
