How he does it I don’t know, but as he drove down the lane on the tractor, planks of wood carefully balanced on a secret mission, Farmer Nick spotted a baby bird or duck flapping alone in the grass over on the cottage lawn. I quick message on the radio and our resident expert was there to help.
Theo the Junior Vet
Ist stop the shed in search of a suitable carrier
Then to carefully catch the frightened baby
Back to the shed to make a home for the night
Hay, clean water from the stream and duck food are all staples on the farm
I marvel at how he knows just what to do and chats away to the duck as he goes, clearly he has already claimed the poorly little might as his own pet, now I just hope he mkes it through the night!
