Four ducks and three turkeys were rescued by the RSPCA after they were spotted at a service station on the M6 last week.

The birds were spotted by staff at Corley Service Station on the M6 northbound near Coventry on Thursday, October 6.

RSPCA inspector Louise Marston said: “We were contacted after two large black turkeys were seen grazing near the lorry park area of the service station. Shortly after catching them, we found a smaller turkey and four Muscovy ducks on a grass verge near the petrol station forecourt.

“None of them were wearing identity rings so we have no idea who they belong to. With so many vehicles around it was not a safe place for them to be, but thankfully they were all safely caught and are now at a private boarding facility.

“If they have strayed then we’d like to reunite them with their owner. Or, if they were abandoned, they we are keen to find out who did this.

“We urge anyone who has any information to contact us in 0300 123 8018.”
