Fri 9th May

Today, I have been receiving a few reports of young birds being seen out and about already. Michal got this young Lapwing chick a couple of days ago, over on the flats at Gruinart. Yesterday, I heard of the sighting of a Ringed Plover with young already, and today a farmer told me of seeing a Greylag with goslings at foot!
James today came across a Shoveler's nest with 11 eggs in it, and he also saw Grey Plover on the reserve at Gruinart. J.R.H.
The mist has come in this evening, so much so, that I cannot see the crag from the house, at least the rain forecast for today never came!
