Please can someone urgently advise how my family should go about removing a mother duck and her ducklings from our garden?
We want to take them to a nearby pond where they will be safe, however we want to move them carefully and not risk the mother flying off.
Contact these people as soon as you can for their advice & maybe help in your area ... https://helpwildlife.co.uk/
