The gold rush by Team GB is being supported by this mallard which has given birth to a golden duckling at WWT London Wetland Centre. There is a single gold duckling with five ‘bronze’ siblings. Staff have nicknamed the duckling Jessica in recognition of the heptathlon gold medal winner.
There’s plenty to see at WWT London Wetland Centre this month, from beautiful gardens and wildflowers to ducklings like Jessica. Meet our new family of otters – or stroll around the lakes and ponds and enjoy the stunning wetland scenery.
