A Nice Surprise

At Tag Cut (Cromwell Bottom Local Nature reserve) today there was a Moorhen with its brood of 3 or 4 very small chicks.
Lets hope they all survive, and start a resurgence of this lovely species in the area where it used to be much commoner. Mink have been blamed for its scarceness.

  1. Nice record Steve. We walked the full length of Tag yesterday and there was nothing on. They must have been in cover.
