RE: Moses Gate.C.P.


Herring Gulls don't breed in Greater Manchester so not sure what you mean by chicks. Do you mean immatures from 2008?

Last morning stroll
2 common terns
Bar headed Goose
There was a pair of GC grebes nesting with two eggs
They were displaced in the last 24 hours by a pair of coots who have started tio build a nest on the grebes patch and former home. More strange is they have a large coot chick with them. This does not appear to be the other brood mentioned eaerlier in the week as they are still on their nest which was also a former great crested grebe nest.
Some tufted duck
Heron
Swift Swallow House and Sand martin
two herring gull chicks
All other characters

Three common terns diving through the lilly pads on the fishing lodge.
The comerant is back and a Heron was seen mobbed by gulls
The family of coots seen yesterday seems to have one parenmt incubating a new clutch. The lasrge chick keeps its distance from the others but is still part of this brood.

Little of note usual characters
Common terns x 2
bull finch coal tit at hide
plenty of young blackbird blue tits etcParent Coot seen with two chicks definately part of the same brood. The largest of the two chicks was continually chased, pushed under water, and attacked by the parent and younger chick. Then parent would occasionally feed it. This carried on for 20 minutes and then they all returned to the nest. confuse.gif

Early morning stroll
2 Gt Crested Grebes seen and although the nest in the middle of the main lodge appears to have been taken over by an old coot, the Grebes could be nesting well hidden in the reeds on the south side of the main lodge. The commorant was absent. 30 Tufted duck on all lodges. Large number of usual.
Two old coots are sitting on nests on seperate lodges.
Walking on the board walks surprised a female Goosander out ofthe reeds on the back lodge and she propelled herself at a fast velocity three feet in front of me into the water. Few wrens seen in reeds.
The Hide was quite but the usual Chaffinchs Greenfincest Blue Great and long tailed tits, bull finches still present.
Heard a woodpecker behind the fishing lodge but this was too far away to identify.
