Eye Spy Nature in July

The Egyptian goose pairs have produced their second brood, with the first brood looking almost adult now. These are noisy and aggressive birds who stick together, are brightly coloured and smaller than other geese on the pond.

Moorhens and coots have broods this month, and the mallard ducklings are growing fast. Look out for common terns and common sandpipers which will be heading south from their inland breeding sites.
