Goldcliff Lagoon

Main Sighting: Avocet chicks
First Avocet chicks seen following their parent across Monk’s, ironically minutes after an NRW undergraduate volunteer tasked with counting them left the site. More seen on the shore of the island with Lapwing and probable Oystercatcher chicks, Ringed Plover chicks seen at the weekend. The avocet chicks looked particularly vulnerable when following each other across the lagoon as completely detached metres from the parent, a Grey Heron being mobbed by Lapwing and distant over towards Prior’s would have made short work of them if it had been closer.
