Ringed Plover chicks
This particular pair of Ringed Plovers had been incubating 4 eggs but only 2 had successfully hatched. Or possibly the other two had hatched but had been predated. Anyway, I dashed up to Rossall and Ian ringed the 2 chicks.
I noticed on the beach that there were a number of returning waders in the form of Dunlin and Ringed Plover. If this weather keeps up there'll be a Storm Petrel or two around over the next couple of days.
