Five cute ducklings are being cared for at the RSPCA’s East Winch wildlife centre.
The baby birds were rescued after falling down a drain.
They are now being looked after in the centre’s orphans room under a heat lamp with food and water.
When they’re old enough they’ll be moved to an outdoor pond before being released.
Mother ducks are usually close by but if she doesn’t return within two hours, the RSPCA says you should carefully collect the ducklings in a box and take them to your nearest wildlife centre.
