Gull Chicks.

The Black-headed chicks are growing quickly at Titchfield Haven National Nature reserve. They are quite characterful in their manner while waiting for their parents to return.

In the harbour a pair of Shelduck had brought their family. Back around 2018 a pair did the same and they raised the family in the safety of the harbour, I wonder if this is the same pair.

Other spots today – a number of Dragonflies were on the wing.

Redshank and Greenfinch in the reserve.

  1. I like when I see birds tell their parents they are hungry – they sure are vocal. I’m still behind in Reader, but came here to send you something. Since you post about shore birds (and often terns) Andy, I just read this article you might be interested in … I hope this never happens in Titchfield Haven. What a sad story. https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2021-06-07/thousands-of-eggs-abandoned-after-drone-crash-at-orange-county-nature-reserve
