Tales from the riverbank by Richard Sales

Sadly, mid February brood of 7 Egyptian Goose goslings all taken by heron, crow and magpie within one week. Female now on nest. Expect new brood within 2or 3 weeks.

“Classic Bridge” coot has four chicks. Four other coot’s nest have breeding females.

The small white headed gull which was present in large numbers during winter is actually a black headed gull. It’s head goes black in summer and they have all left for the coastal marshes to breed.
