Operation Duck Rescue!

Maisie, the mallard, found a comfortable nesting spot in the flower pot of a sunny roof garden at a Teddington apartment. The challenge was when her ducklings actually hatched how would they reach the water.

So, when D-Day duly arrived this week, the apartment owners gently lifted the ten fluffy new-born ducklings into a plastic box and carried them down the three flights of stairs towards a pond in the grounds of the Lensbury Club in Broom Road, Teddington.

Unsurprisingly, Maisie was in a high degree of distress at being separated from her new brood but quickly flew from her nesting spot down on to the path below to be reunited and noisily accompany her big family across the road to a more suitable home on the banks of the River Thames.
