Chick Study (Mallorca)

We arrived in Mallorca to glorious weather and noticeably the water bodies were at a very low level, then for the next nine days it rained, granted we did have periods of sunshine but more often it rained. However, this had one major positive effect, the water levels rose significantly and pushed species such as the Little Ringed Plover and their chicks closer to the hides.

  1. These are great Sam,the last image is stunning,poor chap seems all alone.

  2. Cracking images, love them all. With regard leaving comments on blogs I had this problem but found that I could leave comments if I left that tick box unticked when signing in to other blogs.

  3. Lucky you! That first "chick" shot is just adorable. COULD he be any cuter please?
