Simon was called out to a mother duck and eight tiny ducklings, who’d been spotted on a busy road. The lady who rescued the bird family, with the help of two other people, took more than an hour to catch every single surviving duckling and recover them to safety. Sadly, the mum had a broken wing, so she had to be assessed by the vets. It was not looking good… the family had little chance of staying together. The mother duck’s injury was too severe; she wouldn’t be able to fly again, so the kindest thing to do in order to stop her suffering was to put her to sleep.
The, now orphaned, ducklings will stay with us until they are old enough to be released. We are very successful at rearing ducklings to adulthood, so, even if they have lost their mother, they are in good hands!
