They were also placed under a heat lamp and given a toy duck to "snuggle up to".Marlies Hebdon, who works at the centre, says the ducklings are "recovering well".She said: "We were phoned by a member of the public who was driving along and saw a car in front hit the mother duck."She died and the ducklings scattered."By the time two of our rescuers got there the ducklings had fallen down a drain. "We will put them into a rehab pen with more ducklings and, when they can fly, we will leave them at local water sources."It's our duty to look out for them because without a parent they wouldn't have protection."They snuggle under the  mum at night and she shows them where to get food and water."The ducklings would die in the cold without heat."We give them a toy duck to snuggle up to - they tend to snuggle up to a soft toy."Rescue volunteers Kat McNabb and Chris Liu recovered the ducklings from a main road in Long Ashton, Bristol last week.Secret World Wildlife Rescue posted the video on their Facebook page.Madeline Taylor wrote: "Thank you for rescuing them... poor mummy."Anna Beswick wrote: "Thank you for doing this, so very heartbreaking to hear their mum was killed."Claire Bessex wrote: "How wonderful.
