A MOTHER duck and her babies have become a talking point at one local hotel.

No less than 15 ducklings have been spotted waddling around the grounds of Nailcote Hall near Balsall Common.

Rick Cressman, the hotel’s owner, said: “They’ve become very popular here and we try to keep them well-fed.”

Female mallards usually lay between 7-10 eggs, so it’s rare for nature lovers to see a brood of this size.
