Rescued from Calbourne in July and trained in key survival skills - including swimming - a group of ducklings have been now released back into the Isle of Wight wilderness by the RSPCA.

Around two months ago, these gorgeous balls of fluff were plucked from a drain by a 'quack' team of experts.

When an Islander raised the alarm, Island Roads's duty operatives John Corby and Sean Hillman raised the drain cover. Completing the rescue team was an RSPCA officer.

Since then, the charity has been caring for the ducklings at its animal rescue centre, at Bohemia Corner, near Godshill.

Eight weeks on, they have been released - at Little Upton Farm.

Surely a...well…a quacking good end to a story!
