Chick flick

Given the slow start to the bird breeding season it was something of a surprise to see this recently fledged moorhen on the Mon and Brecon Canal at Griffithstown earlier this week. Its maybe a measure of how bad its been as it appears this was only chick on view.


  1. There's a few Collared Dove chicks about in the garden, i can only imagine how hard it was for those adults sitting eggs etc in that cold. Robin also feeding young in the nest in the boundary hedge.
