A late shift later, and a mountain of things to do, and catch up on at home, but the sun came out early, so an all too brief visit to the local this morning instead.
Anyway, I quickly checked on the nesting Swans, to find they were still there. Good news. The invisible Whitethroat was singing in the bushes still, so two bits of good news. Then quickly to see the Coots.
Good and bad news I think; and something a bit strange.
The good; they’re still there, swimming around, but sadly two young seem to have disappeared. I only counted seven, instead of the original nine. No matter how many times I looked, and counted, still two short.
I watched them for a while, whilst the adults dived for food, and then called them over, to feed them. Fascinating to watch.
