big waters and an update of the blog

Went to Big Waters and a few other places today, also since the last time i posted i have been to Washington wildfowl park, and Killingworth lake. not much at Big waters except 1 or 2 Common tern's. at Washington there was 2 Avocet's which have since then had a few chicks hatch , many Shelducks, 3 Lapwings of which i saw there could have been more. also Some Mallard ducklings, and yet again Common terns. and some young Herons.  At Killingworth the Great crested grebes have hatched and there are 3 at the moment on the little lake and i'm not sure as to what has happened to the ones on the big lake as they were nesting but have stopped and i have yet to  see them. The Whooper swan is still there, and seems to be flying with the Mute's. The Common terns are still there.
