A duck with ducklings have been spotted making their way along a Wellington motorway this morning.

The family of waterfowl were spotted on State Highway 2 near the Normandale overbridge in Hutt Valley about 9am, police central communications centre team leader Amanda Jensen said.

The situation could be dangerous as motorists could swerve to miss them.

Ducks were not common on the motorway, she said.

It is not clear whether the birds made it off the road safely.

About the same time as the duck incident, there was a non-injury nose-to-tail crash on State Highway 2, near Melling.
