New year babies already out and about
WARWICK may still be waiting to welcome its first baby of the new year, but one bustling family is off to a busy start.
This diligent mother and father were spotted taking their baby ducklings for a peaceful morning stroll near Glen road.
Ducks are very social animals that stay together, especially while their babies are young.
But what do you call a group of ducks?
Well that all depends.
Like many other birds, ducks that are in flight are called a 'flock'.
However a group of ducks on the ground, waddling on their iconic webbed feet, they can be referred to as a 'brace' or a 'badling'.
But it gets even more complicated.
On the water, ducks go by a different name.
In their element they are called a 'raft' a 'team' or a 'paddling' - take your pick.
Now you've already started the new year with as a duck expert!
