An update on the Avocet Chicks from 2 weeks ago, plus some new youngsters.
The numbers seem to be holding up reasonably well, although there are a few missing.
My first Signets of the year at East Lane, Suffolk. They started off on the far side of the lagoon and swam straight towards me and disappeared into the reeds only about 30 feet in front of me.
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
First BB youngster captured on trailcam this year

In reply to TJS:
Lovely photos Trevor.
Avocet chicks, all legs and no body...
Sadly the avocet nests at my local reserve were predated by crows, so no avocet chicks for me this year.
