I'm afraid I'm running very late with my holiday photos, but never mind! I can still post a selection of highlights.
We heard about RSPB Fairburn Ings on BBC Springwatch a short while before our departure, so were delighted to find that the reserve was not far off our route as we headed north. There was a buzz in the air when we arrived, and we soon discovered that three Spoonbill chicks had hatched and could be viewed from a distance. My zoom is not the best, but the photo below the 'viewing' blackboard shows mother and young doing well. What a remarkable sight.
There was a heronry with chicks in close proximity, but I would hazard a guess that during our time at Fairburn Ings, all eyes were focused on the Spoonbills.
