Local birding: Avocets, Brockholes Wetland LWT - 13th May 2009.

As someone who missed the first long awaited site record of Avocet three weeks ago, I could hardly have hoped to unblock this bird so soon afterwards. Two birds present on the Main Pool unfortunately departed the site unseen just prior to 08:00. Fabulous birds and a joy to behold during the time they were present. As this species continues to spread and has now found the site, perhaps we can anticipate records annually from now on? Time will tell.
