More trouble t'mill - Little Ringed Plover drama continues

The Little Ringed Plovers whose first nest was predated are still sitting on their new nest but have been for 25 days now which is getting near to the limit. Let's hope they have a few wee fellas running around soon if they are spared from the Magpies and other risks where they are nesting.
Also a couple of a Heron fishing on Keptie Pond but as usual the peace was broken. Lastly a rare visitor to my garden, we used to see them often but now only when the weather is bad.

One of three Magpies bothering a pair of Little Ringed Plovers on an Angus site

Both Little Ringed Plovers were seen again after this chase

Flushed by a dog growling at me at Keptie Pond in Arbroath

Peacefully hunting roach just before the said dog arrived

Brought into my garden by the rainy weather on Wednesday
