This was to have been a full mist netting session, but due to the forecast of heavy showers during much of the morning we plumped for a window of opportunity to look for our colour marked Lapwing chicks and hopefully capture and ring the Little Ringed Plovers.
As it turned out we were able to ring all four Little Ringed Plovers that have grown a bit since we first saw them last week.
Further to that, we resighted two of the previously marked North Norfolk Lapwing project chicks and also managed to capture and ring another rather well grown chick, well past the 'hunker down and freeze' stage.
The final chick of the day was one of two Redshank chicks observed. This is the first confirmed breeding of Redshank at the relatively new Sculthorpe scrape.
Total: 6 (2)
Little Ringed Plover - 4
Lapwing - 1 (2)
Redshank - 1
