Blashfords got the "ah" factor

Little ringed plover chicks still going well this morning and enjoying the sunshine, enjoying the odd excursion out from under the cover of mum.

Lots of dragonflies and butterflies on the wing in the warm sunshine, even first thing, when also enjoying the dappled sun at the woodland edge of the lake to the right of Ivy North Hide were a fox cub and two roe deer kids - the fox didn't stick around but the deer were quite content and allowed me this inferior picture!

At the end of the day I disturbed another roe deer (probably Mum) in the bridged over seasonal pond adjacent to the same hide (Ivy North) and upon entering the hide was rewarded with magnificent views of a kingfisher fishing from the reedmace heads immediately in front.
