I forgot to upload this video etc: of the Avocets at Cresswell just as the young where hatching it was a bit windy even in the hide I tried some stills but the video is better to show the action and reaction of the birds as the chicks appear, it's great to see these fantastic birds breeding in the County but alas it seems the novelty has already worn off with complaints of the adults not allowing any other wader to land anywhere near there offspring , the fault lies not in good parenting but the lack of good habitat put some effort in providing this for all either breeding birds or passage waders. One birder said he was tempted to nip over with an air rifle at his local patch to rid it of Avocets , why do we always think stupid before thinking smart !!!!
A Challenge Too Far?
