Not a big deal in the east but still scarce spring visitors in the Deepings. Several have failed to breed on the Nene Washes this year, which has led to several pairs wandering north. I found three on Sunday morning at Deeping Lakes. The pair built two nests and did several courtship displays whilst I was there and the pair were still there today. However, this afternoon they headed north to Baston & Langtoft GP then to Baston Fen and then perhaps North Drove.

  1. Lovely photos there! Even in my country the pied avocet is only a scarce winter visitor and I haven’t seen one yet.
