Tufted Ducklings Paddle After Disappearing Diving Mom
Occurred on June 28, 2021 / London Wetland Centre, Barnes, London, England, UK
Info from Licensor: "This clip was filmed on Monday 28th June 2021 by Alice at the London Wetland Centre, a London nature reserve run by the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust charity. It was filmed on Monday morning, whilst I was waiting around by the entrance, watching ducks from a bridge. The video features a tufted duck family with seven ducklings exploring the entrance lake at London Wetland Centre. Every time mum has a hunt under the water for food, the ducklings are left to furiously paddle to catch up with her. Looks like a game of hide and seek, or perhaps mum trying to catch a moment's peace! Tufted ducks are a common species of duck in the UK, and these are wild animals living at the London Wetland Centre."
