Duckling drama

Dulaig ducklings We were delighted when Mrs Duck brought her day-old ducklings to our wildlife pond. The 10 ducklings explored their new surroundings, had their first swim and the scene was very peaceful until a second mother duck came along with her new brood of 13 ducklings…..pandemonium broke out!

After a battle for “ownership” of the pond the mothers seem to have agreed a truce for now.

What will happen next? Watch this space or, even better, come to The Dulaig and see for yourself!
