Mother Duck Lays Her Eggs on a 7-story Balcony in a Very Urbanized Area of East London, Two Years in a Row

When everyone was being bored in their homes, seeing no one new besides their family or friends they were in quarantine with, Twitter user Johanna Kolerski-Bezerra had quite an interesting guest. A nesting duck mother chose her 7th-floor balcony to lay her eggs. Kolerski-Bazerra’s apartment is on a block near Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London, and it’s quite a surprise that a duck would choose such an urbanized area to kay her eggs, especially when it’s 7 stories up.

Kolerski-Bazerrawas surprised by this unexpected guest that she even named the bird Carmen. This was during the first lockdown that London was going through, but then the next year on the second lockdown, Carmen came back and this time brought a male mallard duck, which is supposed to be her birth partner. Soon after that mother duck laid an egg, which was still very surprising to the homeowners because of the location of their apartment.

Despite a few misgivings the second time around, Kolerski-Bezerra allowed Carmen to reclaim her nesting spot and decided to document the whole process on Twitter. As seen in the pictures she shared, mother duck prepared the nesting material with leaves from the balcony’s fake foliage screening and feathers from her own body to keep the eggs warm while incubating. It took six weeks for the eggs to begin to hatch, initiating the complicated process of getting the newborn ducklings back onto level ground and to an appropriate water source for their survival.

Trying to get the ducks and ducklings out of the balcony was quite a challenge, and for that two volunteers from the Swan Sanctuary, Gill & Andy, came to help, where they made sure the duck family was brought to the nearest pond, Waterglade, in East Village

Same Crocodile, Same Place 15 Years Apart- Steve Irwin’s Son Recreates His Father’s Most Iconic Photo

We are living in a world that nothing is guaranteed forever. due to extreme pollution and global warming and harmful thing happening the earth is becoming a big mess. Not only for humans but also for animals. They have been massively going on extinct and unprotected by human harm and evilness.

Nonetheless, the rates of extinction that are currently taking place are actually comparable to the rates that took place when dinosaurs were wiped off of the face of the planet.

However, there is still a ray of hope when it comes to people who actually care about other beings except themselves.

I bet Everyone knows the late, great Steve Irwin. He left behind an incredible legacy. He was a crocodile hunter with a heart of gold.

When we remember steve we see that all he ever wanted was that all the animals in the Australian Zoo where he used to work to be treated with the utmost respect. If these animals are not given the chance to hunt down moving prey, they are more likely to become extinct. That’s why the efforts of trained handlers are important. Without their assistance, the crocodiles are unable to feed in the proper manner.

His son Murray made a recreation photo like his father did but 15 years after a very iconic photo of his father feeding the same crocodile. Now, Robert is the one who is responsible for his welfare. The Instagram post went viral and was liked by every animal lover out there. And Robert hopes he can shed light to everyone about animal rights welfare.
