4 adult common terms with 2 large and 2 small chicks on the floating platform.

4 avocets at the Brick Croft end of the pool, with 2 sitting on the two small islands and 2 in the pool. Looking from the canal towpath there appeared to be one and possibly two more sitting at the back of one of the islands.

Also 2 common sandpipers and 32 oystercatchers.

Thanks very much for the update. Much appreciated.

A note of caution to everyone if I may.....
Because of the very close proximity of the road to the 2 small islands at Brick Croft that every time anyone views the Avocet nests from there the birds fly away and leave their eggs exposed to predators. Please take care as the Avocets have a very poor track record on Conder Pool.
Cheers all

One of the Common Tern juveniles has flown from the Pontoon, leaving the other large juvenile behind. Three small chicks remain behind on the pontoon, so a total of four adults and five young.
Little Ringed Plover seen, plus several Common Sandpiper.

Smal Islands at Brick Croft end!

I agree re care needed viewing the nests at the Brick croft end, just the sight of a head over the bank and the Birds desert and set up Alarm Calls!
