Ringed Plover – 10th June

On the Wader Scrape this morning there were two Ringed Plovers. They were later seen copulating. The Little Ringed Plover pair have produced at least one diminutive chick and there are two pairs of Lapwings with chicks. A Cuckoo was calling from the fence posts around the Deep Pit and a Red-crested Pochard is on the Slurry Lagoon. By the Small Gravel Pit there was a Hairy Dragonfly and a Four-spotted Chaser, as well as several Red-eyed Damselflies and a Small Red-eyed Damselfly. PS.
