Little Ringed Plover. Peter Guy.
Always a difficult bird to keep in touch with at Conder Green. The Little Ringed Plover (LRP) is annual here on Conder Pool, but as far as I'm concerned records have always been patchy and this year is no exception. I personally saw my first this year on 2 April when I found two birds. Since then - despite 26 visits - I found a LRP here only three times, and with little time before they depart I may not see them again this year. Void of a search through my records, I probably only ever had the evidence of breeding on maybe two occasions on Conder Pool with young/juveniles seen. All that said, it was excellent to see the report of an adult and three young on Conder Pool on Friday 26 July....Thanks for the LRP Peter.
There's a read about Conder Green/Pool HERE though depending on how long you've had an interest in Birds2blog you may have already seen it.
Below is an nice short video which I found to be an excellent way of escapism into the natural world for 1.30 minutes....Thanks Ana.
