    Default Duckling is trampled by mother as it takes to water for the first time

    Like most mothers, this duck is probably getting tired of telling her brood not to get under her feet. But at least one of them hasn’t been listening.
    The duckling was soundly stepped on when its busy mother shepherded the youngsters out of the way of an approaching swan.
    The duckling sprang back up, fluffing up its feathers indignantly before trailing after its siblings by the River Avon in Christchurch, Dorset.

    ‘I couldn’t believe my eyes,’ said an onlooker. ‘She just trod straight on top of the little duckling. I thought she must have killed it,because it’s only a tiny frail thing. But it bounced straight back up again and shook itself down.
    ‘The mother had a look to see if it was OK and waddled on her way.’
