SHAG found dead on Sunday

This morning the juvenile Shag was picked up dead near the ringing jetty, gruesome picture above.

Also it appears that a pair of Little Egrets may have bred in the central bushes along Drayton Bank. Speaking to Graham this morning he mentioned that he had watched an adult feeding 3 young birds last week. Only when the adult arrived with food did they appear and once feed they would disappear down into the bush. Steve, Ian and me watched this morning from the jetty and 2 very young juveniles were in the bushes, both these did appear to have some down on their head. One bird soon disappeared low down into the bush, whilst the other could be seen clambering around the top branches (Dave Bilcock).
