Little Ringed Plover – 26th June

This morning there was a juvenile Little Ringed Plover on the Slurry Lagoon. There were still eight Red-crested Pochard and the Gadwall had all eleven ducklings and the Mallard still had her five. There were good numbers of Small Skippers about and two Black-tailed Skimmers and one Four-spotted Chaser with some Red-eyed Damselflies on the Small Gravel Pit. PS. AE

A juvenile Little Ringed Plover was feeding on the Slurry Lagoon’s waters’ edge for some time this afternoon.   There were also still four Red-crested Pochards on the Slurry and the Gadwall still has all eleven of her ducklings.  Unexpectedly not many butterflies were about – the most interesting being a Small Skipper.
