L’dod Lake.

A dull day weatherwise, but our first ducklings hit the news! 10 or more! Try counting ’em! Ma has her wings full…sad , but I doubt if many will survive-the gulls will see to that-or the Heron-or the Crow etc.

Plus-young Moorhens saw daylight too-pretty early! Meanwhile the Reed Warb belts out his song and the Reed Bunts are still here…nesting?

    Lovely pics “Mr Joynes” and great to see you for a chat at the lake on Thursday. 🙂 I counted 11 little ducklings then, bless them. I suspect you’re right about the predation tho!

    Any sign of the common sands again? Was great to see 2 flying round the island on Thurs.

    Very kind Heather-great to see you too-no more of the” Joynes” stuff mind! At least it’s better than SIR , which I still get served on occasion!!! Despite never having been knighted! No , the pipers disappeared as is their wont-nowhere decent for them to feed.Ps. Sue knew you straight off!!
