Thurs 3rd July

The other remaining Swallows have all now fledged here at home, while over at Gruinart the Swallow that has built its nest at the door at the visitor centre, well the the young only hatched out today. In some ways, the fact that they hatched is amazing in some ways as the Swallow herself had a difficult time incubating the eggs as she appeared to be easily disturbed each time the door was opened! Down at the hide today, there was Greenshank, Redshank, Snipe, ringtail Hen Harrier, Sedge warbler, but I did not hear any Corncrakes calling. One of the Mute swans was proudly showing of her 5 young cygnets.
