The eggs of both the Ringed Plover and the Oystercatcher that I have been monitoring have disappeared and neither sets of parents were nearby this morning..... 4 Carrion Crows were patrolling the beach, menacingly.
The swallows are still in the area but don't appear to be going into the hide. Although I have put a notice on the door 'swallows are nesting....please don't enter' there is evidence that it has been used as additional flaps have been opened. The majority of visitors are respecting the request.
A few curlews are present today and the Little Terns are much in evidence but generally it is typically quiet for June.
