Possibly my last visit to see these fabulous birds for over a week so i might not see their courtship at its stunning best. What i've seen so far hasn't been too bad mind you. Brian (Killy Birder) pointed out on his blog that the 2 GCG's on the smaller lake were already nesting. It would seem that we will have the same scenario as last year with the smaller lake having "humbugs" first. I can't wait to get back to follow both sets of birds further. Must mention that the 2 Oystercatchers are still around.
These images come from the larger lake.
