Chick time!

We’ve had lots of fab photos emailed in over the past few days, thank you to everyone who’s taken the time to share them with us! Especially popular are the lapwing chicks which have been showing very nicely in front of Tern Hide.

The chicks have amazing camouflage in amongst the gravel shore line and definitely tick all the right boxes on the cute and fluffy front!

Thanks also to Sue Marshall for emailing across some of the other slightly less cute and fluffy but still very lovely to look at birds on the reserve:

Do keep them coming! If you’re happy for us to pop them on the blog and use them within the Trust please do say when you email them in and please do let us know who we need to credit when we use them.

The cute and fluffier the better…

  1. ooh thank you so much for using my images…. I really love just walking round and just seeing what I can catch on lens on the way round.. usually do about 3 miles and it is quite stunning and always something different to see 🙂

  2. Great shots all! Thank you to the photographers. The lapwing do seem to be having a good year so far with four broods hatched so far. Mind you they need it they are declining quite rapidly across the UK, so need all the help they can get.
