A family of Mallards was spotted waddling along on one of the outside courts at Wimbledon last week during one of the numerous rain delays. When officials approached to shoo them off the Mother flew off in alarm.
Animal protection officers stepped in and took the ducklings to a local sanctuary. The ducklings were then brought back to Wimbledon and released on the golf course opposite the All England Club.
Thankfully there was a heart-warming reunion when the mother flew back and the family are now settled in well on the golf course.
