Following on from the previous post, we knew that the Little Ringed Plover chicks were due any time and as the weather looked good for Wednesday and we had nothing else to get in the way, we planned to pop down to Upton that evening and just see if nature had taken it's course.
I saw on Tuesday on Birds Forum that it had so off we went.. When we got to the Avocet Hide, one LRP chick was out and showing well. We did learn that there had been two chicks but a Black Headed Gull had taken the other. So bearing in mind that this is tiny and a distance away, here are a couple of snaps..
So off to the Moors.....................
We had a nice chat in the Moors Car Park where a nice couple showed us there pics of the Owl (they had managed to get closer), then off to the concrete for 20 minutes and a cuppa, before home and tea!
The light was getting very low now, so the photo's aren't great, but a nice Tufted Duck family came past the hide:
So a very pleasant couple of hours was had. Lots's to see, a Gorgeous Wife to sit with, nice people to chat to and a sunny evening, wish we could do it every day.
