Avocets

There's three avocets at Cresswell (I know cos I saw them) and there's been three at East Chev, why don't they drop into Druridge?

I did see the Mallard brood tonight, seven of them and one of the pairs of stonechat are feeding young.

Hopefully we'l l start ringing on Sunday

I was watching one of the Avocet at Cresswell this afternoon when two more appaered on the horizon over Bell's Farm probably after passing over Drurige.

ST - there were a pair of mallard with two small young on the big pool tonight - I hope that's not the same brood!
