        Thanks for the avocet sighting Barrie. 6J is one of two from the last brood to hatch, and is an offspring of one of the birds fledged at Conder pool in 2020.

          Thanks for confirming that Ian. I was looking to see if there was a metal ring on the adult but couldn’t see one – I did wonder if it was that brood.

            Juv Avocet 6J again on the River Conder with sibling and un-ringed adult.

            Seventeen Greenshanks at Conder Pool, also a Kingfisher being chased by a paranoid Lapwing. 10+ Common Terns still there.
