Medmerry RSPB

Saturday morning
I went to see if I could find the Black-Winged Stilt chicks
at Medmerry.
Hot & sticky day for a long walk and so worth it
my last time was a month ago when the three chicks crossed the road
to go into the larger area.
Watching mum & dad walked the chicks over the road and up the path
amazing to see.
Today Saturday morning that is, a slow walk to the east end of the
beach from Medmerry I now where to go as I spoke to Andrew House
& Sam Hill the Chicks were on flying lessons with mum & dad nearby
Leggy was easy to find ( Colin& Mich ) he flow out of a ditch and
behind the other two chicks.
then they had ago with a wing stretch first & mum showing them how to fly.
