Firefighters rescued a mother duck and little ducklings from the roof of an outbuilding today.
Fire crews rushed to Ramsgate after receiving a report of the baby ducks and their mum being in a spot of bother.
Kent Fire and Rescue Service posted about the rescue on its Twitter page this afternoon.
A spokesman said: "Firefighters used a ladder to access the feathered family, before safely cutting back any thick vegetation and moving them to a nearby pond. An egg-cellent ending!"
Earlier this month, a 13-week-old kitten whose adventures left her in a tight spot also had to be rescued by firefighters.
Crews used a snake-eye camera to locate Sukki who had got trapped between a wall and a cupboard in a house in Clifton Road, Gravesend.
Meanwhile, in March, the RSPCA was called to help fox cubs that were stuck in Biggin Hill workshop.
