Visiting the Ducklings

Some of our babies from Butterflies and Caterpillars took a trip to the pond outside the Roger Stevens building on the University of Leeds campus this morning to visit the newly hatched ducklings that have taken residence there! The ducks make their home at the pond each year and are looked after by staff at the University who make sure they eat a balanced diet.

Mummy Duck was keeping her ducklings very close but we managed to glimpse them hiding underneath her feathers! We will visit them several times in the next couple of weeks as they grow bigger and stronger.
