Well we have a tick in the box for increasing biodiversity on the reserve.
We now have nine fit and healthy Mallard chicks cruising the big pond, as far as I’m aware the first to be born on this piece of land!
Hot on the heels of the Mallard family were our Moorhen family, today I spotted five new chicks, I think there may be more but they are a bit more secretive and also split the babysitting duties unlike the Mallard where Mum is left to do all the work!
Not quite as photogenic the Moorhen chicks!!
