Could just make out at least one oystercatcher chick with an adult in long grass by the pool side this evening, so presumably the young were able to get off the island somehow. Answers on a postcard...
Otherwise both adult LRPs were present though no youngster spotted.
The coot brood were down 1, to 2 chicks. No tufties or shoveler seen.
First moorhen chick of the year on the Wildfowlers' Pools.
Greylag pair with 4 goslings on the river.
My brother Dave saw a roe deer in the proposed nature reserve at Fairfield (viewed from the Millennium Orchard) this evening - certainly the first I've heard of there.
