VIDEO: First mallard ducklings of the year at Arundel

THESE are the first mallard ducklings to be born at the WWT Arundel Wetland Centre – and they have come early because of the warm weather.

The animals hatched on Thursday, February 20, and were born earlier than normal because of the unseasonably mild winter.

The ducklings are in the Lakes and Forest exhibit at the reserve, in Mill Road, which is open between 9.30am and 4.30pm seven days a week.
