Moorhen: After a stroll around Grosvenor Park I came across a pair of Moorhen with seven chicks which were not shy at all. It was great to each as they begged for food and fed from their parents.

They are such strange looking chicks I think they look almost prehistoric like, with their balled heads and short stumpy wings
Reed Bunting: Form Grosvenor Park I headed down to Chester Meadows spotting Linnets and Reed Buntings within the Gauze bushes.

Common Gull: Before the rain started to drench me I snapped this Common Gull hanging around with five Black Headed Gulls on the River Dee. It’s only the second time I have seen this not-so-Common Gull in on the Dee.
