A walk to the marsh was in fine summer sunshine with a cooling breeze making the experience all the more enjoyable. The birds certainly added to the ambiance and a little surprise with the sound of pattering tiny webbed feet.
The Avocet have produced 4 chicks which were actively feeding with an attendant mother overlooking her little’uns.

A Ringed Plover was also present and the whole marsh was busy with the song and sights of a summer full of promise. Adding to all of this was the re-emergence of the two courting Common Hare in a more secluded field and a Water Vole was collecting food in the ditch alongside Moorditch Lane.
