From the Archive... No. 18

Avocets bred at Maxey pits in 2008, successfully raising two chicks. This was one of them. In 2010, a pair also sat, but the chicks were gobbled up soon after hatching (according to a second hand report obtained from a not particularly reliable source, by Carrion Crows). So, here is a reminder of jollier times.
