Some newly hatched ducklings today. The gadwalls had eight and the shellducks seven.The shellducks always struggle to get any ducklings through to adults so hopefully this year will be better. A lapwing was still on eggs in the meadow and a couple of pair of swallows are still nest building. The buzzards now have chicks and the 5 pied wag fledglings are doing well. The Lrp's are still hanging around but no sign of breeding yet.
2 male broad bodied chasers on the pond today.
