.. some distance from the duck pond. It is really really hot.

SHould I go back and pick it up if it is still there?

What would I do with it?

It wasn't fluffy and yellow but not adult plumage either.

I am feeling guilty and worried about it.

that's my problem!

I'm just worried what i would do with it and what I'd feed it etc etc.

We live near a wetlands centre and people are always 'rescuing' ducklings they find. 99% of the time the rangers say to leave them as the mother will come looking / back / be hiding because she saw you.

I however would probably end up putting it back in the pond in this situation - as it would be at risk wandering along the road?

That's the problem - the pond with the ducks on is quite a distance. Realistically, it can't have walked there. Could it have flown? I've no idea!

Maybe someone has ducks in their garden.

Maybe i could go and move it to the large grassed area and put a tub of water down for it... if it's still there - I'd have to drive back to it.
