A 10-year-old labrador named Fred has become like a father to nine baby birds at a castle in Essex after their mother disappeared. The ducklings have been following Fred around, and staff says they'll stay at the castle until they're old enough to leave.
The owner of the dog is totally ok with the new family members saying "It's a pleasure" to see his pet adopting the orphaned ducklings.
