    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.

    Ian – we were probably looking at the same three Avocets (I was at Conder Green picnic site). They were an adult with two juvs, one of which had a yellow ring/flag but it was too far away to read.

    Thirty two Little Egrets feeding in the same “tidal pool” on the Lune at Stodday at 10.00.

    Hi John,
    On the estate where I live, my maximum number of nests last year was 34. This year it is 12. My first HM sighting was three weeks later than last year as well.

    Osprey showed well between 5.30 and 6.30pm. Caught a fish and took it to Grisedale Wood to eat it. Returned, but was harassed by a Black-headed Gull and flew off towards Morecambe Bay.

    A Ringed Plover on Wildfowlers’ at 09.00

    A Starling imitating singing Common Rosefinch on a visit to Belarus once had me excited. As it was April I realised it was probably too early for a Rosefinch before finding the Starling on the other side of a farm building – a bit of an anticlimax.

    Or a dog owner unleashed their dogs to have a “play in the water” as seen on Frog Pond this morning.

    Sorry to be a misery guts, but as this website is open to anyone, perhaps it’s best to keep information on this persecuted species like this off here.
