The amazing weather continued on my return from Dorset so I headed over for a morning at Upton Warren. There can't be many better places to spend a morning.
A Great Crested Grebe had a chick on it's back on the sailing pool before I headed down to the Flashes. A Wren posed brilliantly singing his heart out whilst there were Sedge & Reed Warblers both singing too.
The first two Avocet broods had been born taking their first steps closely guarded by their parents. It was fantastic to see three Little Ringed Plover chicks also, their parents were working very hard to ensure their new born did not attract any undue attention.
Over at the Moors a Common Tern was on the raft but the best views were of a family of Oystercatchers below the hide.
As always plenty of friendly chat with the locals and we did amuse ourselves by reviewing a certain Twitter account of a midlands area attracting some amazing rare birds on a daily basis. Poor Dave Jackson almost fell off the hide bench laughing.
