I do not normally show birds on their nests on my website due to possible disturbance.
However, a pair of Coots for the first time ever have decided to nest at the pond at Raw Nook NR.
NOW SHE IS UP AGAINST IT….AND SHE NEEDS OUR HELP!
Firstly a plea to all dog walkers!!! Please, Please don’t let you dog swim in the pond and chase the nesting pair.
I stayed on the bank and took the photo opposite so please don’t go near the nest site.
Secondly…and I’m afraid this is out of all our hands… is the weather!
Because it’s been a very dry spring the pond is receding and the forecast is for dry weather with sadly no rain in prospect for the next week or so.
I just hope that SHE know nature better than we do and her family will survive and I/we are worrying for nothing.
