A DUCK in Marbella has captured the hearts of locals after bravely escorting her chicks across a road.
A video caught the moment the mother bird led a dozen ducklings down the beach, through some rocks and over a road.
The film sees the mother duck looking out for cyclists and pedestrians passing by, as she helps her babies cross.
Writing online, one person said: “Mama duck has a football team,” while others commented on the ‘wonder of nature’.
The video, published on the ‘La Voz De Marbella’ Facebook page received hundreds of likes and shares.
A statement accompanying it read: “Marbella is fantastic, a natural and tourist paradise that surprises us many times.”
