VIDEO: Baby animals take over at Brent Lodge

Spring has seen a bumper crop of new arrivals at a local wildlife rescue centre.

Brent Lodge Wildlife Hospital, in Sidlesham, now has a number of cute creatures being cared for by its staff after they were rescued.

A female badger cub, which is now nine weeks old, has become a firm favourite with fans of their Facebook page - and she’s growing fast, as you can see from our video.

Staff posted on the page that the cub has started to drink out of a bowl - which means no more hand-feeding throughout the day and night.

Also taking up residence at the centre are three fox cubs, which are sharing a pen, with another younger member to join them shortly.

Last year saw 70 ducklings rescued and taken to Brent Lodge, so they expect this year’s solitary duckling to be the first of many.

A tiny squirrel is being cared for, as is a baby blackbird which was caught by a cat, along with four little rabbits.

Brent Lodge has more than 2,000 likes on its Facebook page which you can see here.

The centre is keen for donations of puppy food to help feed their new arrivals - if you can help, call 01243 641672 or email enquiries@brentlodge.org
