Feathered Friends

Friday, June 7th 2013

Whilst out on the training area this Lapwing nest was discovered with one egg intact, one in the process of hatching and one small chick.


Curlew chicks are also out on the moors now and many have been ringed by the Foxglove team.


Ringing chicks often demands other skills as illustrated by Johanna as she paddled around a large pond with her sister Eleanor to find Black Headed Gull chicks for the bird ringers to ring.


In total 20 chicks were caught and ringed before being released back onto the water. Mòran taing!
