Some photos from today at Black Hole Marsh
Then a nice tranquil scene
suddenly became this
Mum and Dad to the rescue
Am not sure if she was trying to steal or drown the duckling. As she had some of her own perhaps she thought it was one of hers. Thankfully it seemed non the worse for its ordeal.
Then one of the oyster catchers decided to try and oust the moorhen from her nest
but her mate came to her rescue
and after a couple of feeble attempts aggressively surprised the oyster catcher from underneath and chased it off.
