Gone with the wind: Mother duck looks on as her ten ducklings are swept away by powerful gust



Unaware: The 10 ducklings follow mum not knowing what danger is lurking around the corner

Watching her ducklings fly into the air should have been a proud moment for mother.
But it wasn't out of choice that the young bird took flight.

These 10 ducklings were blown into the air- by a gust of wind.

Ouch! The ducklings are blown away in all directions while mum looks on

Blown away: Even mum had trouble staying on her feet and was blown over by the wind

The sheer force of the wind sent the baby ducklings hurtling in all directions and even mum lost the struggle to stay on her feet.

The brood were following mother through Woodbine racecourse outside Toronto when the blustery conditions took hold.

Unaware of what was about to happen the group made their way in a uniform line before disaster struck.

A gust of wind sent the young ducks flying into the air and the group was sent flying through the air.

Even the mother had trouble and was blown over rolling around unable to help her young ones.

Luckily it all ended as quickly as it had started and the group hurriedly filed back into line.
