Two mallards, called Jemimah and Doris, have nested in the beer garden at a Birmingham pub and given birth to no less than 20 ducklings.
And the new arrivals have been given their own paddling pools at The Black Horse on Bristol Road in Northfield, Birmingham, as there is no water nearby.
Russell Bridges, Duty Manager at the pub, calls the ducks his ‘babies’ said he's earned himself a variety of nicknames including ‘Daddy duck’, ‘Daffy’ and ‘Donald’.
The 32-year-old said the duck invasion came as no surprise as three females and one male normally visit every year.
Russel said the only problem comes from Jemimah, as she doesn’t like to share her new home.
