£600 duckling stolen from Comber Wetlands Center
An urgent appeal for information has been issued after a Mandarin duckling was reported stolen from Castle Espie Wetlands Centre in Comber, Co Down on Monday.
The centre has appealed for the two-week-old duckling's immediate return as they have a specialist diet when they are young.
Mandarin Ducks can be sold for up to £600 and are very colourful when they are fully grown.
"A Mandarin duckling was taken from inside our Duckery. At such a young age, these birds require a special diet, so its safe return is a high priority," a Castle Espie spokesperson said.
"If anyone has any information that could help us reunite this duckling with its family, please let us know."
