Mother duck rescued from M80 and later reunited with ducklings by Scottish SPCA

The Scottish SPCA is currently caring for a mother duck and her ducklings after they were rescued from the central reservation on the M80.

Daisy and duckWe were alerted to the injured mother duck on 14 June. Later that afternoon a second caller alerted the charity to the five ducklings who had become trapped on the central reservation.

The adorable family is now being rehabilitated at our National Wildlife Rescue Centre in Fishcross, where the mother has been named Daisy.

Centre Manager Colin Seddon said, “Mother and ducklings are doing very well at present, with Daisy receiving medication for some minor injuries.

“We were delighted to be able to reunite mum with her babies and are grateful for the vigilant members of public who spotted them.

“Once Daisy has fully recovered we will release her and her ducklings back into the wild.”

Anyone who discovers an injured or distressed wild animal should call our animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
