The feeders were busy with goldfinches and greenfinches both of which had fledged young. There were also three redpolls around.
|Three adult and one young goldfinch|
Most gull chicks have fledged and the terns are still on eggs. The swan family is down to four cygnets from six, there were six shelduck young and at least three broods of mallards.Worryingly for all concerned the water levels are dropping and we need substantial rainfall soon. Sorry for all you holiday makers!!
Much more of this dry weather and we will be able to walk out to the tern island. and the terns will be posing on posts on dry ground.
