Mallard and her Ducklings saved from a Sticky End

Posted by Jon in News, Rescued, Wild Birds on Sunday 29/07/2012 19:23 UTC.

This mother Mallard nests on the roof of the QMC Hospital every year to rear her young, the maintenance staff there take care of her and transport her young to water when ready.

Unfortunately last week, roof repairs were carried out and mum and ducklings walked through wet sealant covering themselves in a sticky mess.

Three of her chicks didn’t make it to us, but mum and the four surviving ducklings were brought to us and are doing very well.
