Ugly duckling?

There Once was an Ugly Duckling...

A family of ducks was spotted at the Willowglen River, Stornoway and included this one very cute yellow baby duck.

The family have become quite an attraction and have gathered lots of interest from passers-by, so much so that the mother duck has decided to move them down river a little in order to get a little peace and quiet for her brood of youngsters.
