Watching and Waiting


It won’t be long now before the eggs hatch in the moorhens nest that I have been watching throughout my lunch break by the riverside. The nest (2nd one this year) has been built in the same place as last year though without the added shelter a traffic cone. Yesterday I counted six eggs as Mrs Moorhen took a quick wash and brush up before hopping back onto the nest and waited patiently for Mr Moorhen to give her a leaf or two.
