MORE than 2,000 people turned up to meet Secret World Wildlife Rescue's newest young animals at the charity's wildlife babies event.

The event saw the East Huntspill centre open its doors from Friday to Monday. Visitors from as far away as Yorkshire met rescued ducklings, tawny owl chicks and baby jackdaws.

Tips and advice, such as how to make gardens hedgehog-friendly, were also on offer, while ferret racing was a big hit with guests.

Secret World’s Jane Lillis said: “Visitors have really enjoyed meeting the orphaned animals in our care this weekend.

“We have already seen a record number of wildlife casualties this year, and we expect to help more than 2,500 animals this summer.”
