Ducklings washed away down underwater river

Every year, we are called out to rescue a group of ducklings from a very unusual situation – falling down a weir into an underground river!

This year, half of this mothers litter had been washed away. They were quickly growing tired and needed urgent help if they were to survive. Simon and Lawrie, our cameraman, ventured into the narrow tunnels under the building and quickly had the lost youngsters caught.

Luckily, mum was being very noisy and we soon had the family back together. After they were reunited, we set up a wire mesh over the entrance to the weir to hopefully stop this happening again. Fingers crossed!
