An adult Spur-winged Lapwing spent more than an hour this morning trying to coax a recently hatched chick through the perimeter fence in front of the Sewage Works hide. Finally the chick found a hole went through and climbed up to join its parent. The adult then wanted it to get down the steep slope to the water’s edge. But the chick was even less keen on that! Eventually the other parent joined in and the chick disappeared over the edge and out of sight. I hope it had a safe landing!
