Bobbit's Hole welcomes ten ducklings
3:00pm Saturday 28th September 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
BOBBIT’S Hole has welcomed ten little bundles of joy as summer draws to a close.
Volunteers at the nature reserve in the centre of Dovercourt got a surprise on Sunday when ten baby ducklings appeared out of the reed beds.
The ducklings and proud mum thrilled the Harwich Society who have been working throughout the year to maintain the reserve.
Six of the ducklings have yellow feathers, three have black feathers and the last has brown.
Their mother is a white duck with pale beak.
