Finally onto the Flashes
The green sand from earlier in the day was not visible and could well be on the 3rd flash were a lapwing dropped onto.
The Avocet chicks were down to 7 with broods of 1:1:2 and 3. The original brood of 4 are now down to 2 and these were bigger than the recently lost chick. However they are themselves 2/3 the size of the largest chicks but only 2 days younger. There are at least 6 LRP still around and just 1 lapwing. The pair of teal from yesterday are still about, as is the pair of shelduck.
Also seen today: tufted 12, common gull 1st summer, common tern, BHG c200, Buzzard 3, stock dove 5, raven and more reed warblers, now singing from the scrub next to the hide.
On the sailing pool 4 GCG with 2 half grown chicks
