June 9th

I managed to find some time in between night shifts on the Chesil Little Terns to return to the Avalon Marshes to lead a guided walk for The Old Oaks Touring Park on Saturday morning.
As expected of this time of year, wildlife sightings were plentiful, here's a few pics from the weekend:

This Bittern is ringed!! Frustratingly too blurred to read the combination

Four-spotted Chasers out in big numbers now

Great White Egret

The Little Terns are doing great, with 32 active nests so far. The first chicks have hatched too, though i've yet to see them as i've only been on duty during the hours of darkness.
