Mother duck sorts out her surfing chicks quack-smart

AN Armstrong Beach resident was enjoying his morning coffee yesterday when he heard something unusual - "a few quacks" coming from the backyard.

Stepping out to investigate, Julian Jenner saw four little ducklings 'surfing' in the family's backyard pool while 'mum and dad' watched closely.

Mr Jenner said it was a cute sight and something he hadn't seen before, adding it was "something different to watching the kids bounce around in there anyway".

He turned off the pool filter, so the ducklings wouldn't get sucked in, and left them to enjoy their surfing.
