First breeding of Pied Avocet in Scotland

This year a pair of Pied Avocets have fledged three young somewhere along the shores of the Firth of Forth. This is the first breeding record for Scotland.

My first ever sighting of Avocet was on the Firth of Tay many years ago, never thought they'd ever breed in Scotland back then

They must breed in Southern Cumbria coastal regions and on coastal belt of North East England?
