Six Little Ducks

Six Little Ducks

Documenting the animals of Ranger Den, nature and wildlife.

Watch our Easter ducklings hatch.

The Rangers initial plan was to incubate, hatch and rear native British Ducks for visitors to enjoy, but due to current guidance and the park being closed earlier this year, Ranger Mike took the duck eggs home and is now the proud father of six rather cute (if we do say so ourselves!) little ducklings.

Ranger Mike documented and showcased these fantastic animals by providing regular updates on their progress and the pitfalls of raising six needy ducklings.
