I saw all 3…

I saw all three baby (now teenagers) Moorhens on Lollycocks pond today, so they have all survived. There are still a few baby Moorhen second broods around, I do not count these now as I just hate it when I realise that 1 has been lost. A dog went for a moorhen today and I […]

Its quite a time since

Its quite a time since I saw ‘Stiff Legs’ although he did also disapear last year for quite a time but eventually came back. BUT I had a great view of the Kingfisher today. I was standing still and he/she came up the river and as it passed me (only a few yards away) it […]

A adult Moorhen with babies saw a small duckling getting too close for comfort, so it attacked the duckling which dived under water, the Moorhen was waiting for it to come back to the surface when I saw something dark travelling fast out of the corner of my eye. This dark object was the ducklings […]
