May 2019 – Education: The fabulous ducks of Apple Tree Nursery

Apple Tree Nursery in Essex kept the ducks they hatched last year and created a fully enclosed run for them to live in on site. They also have a large grass enclosure, where they spend time interacting with the nursery children and staff. Here they are a year on, looking gorgeous! The girls are laying well and their eggs are given to parents to take home.
