The Depot’s New Arrivals

In the recent moving of the furniture around the depot we have disturbed the yearly nesting of our local Masked lapwing (Vanellus miles) they have a clutch of three eggs and are guarding their territory like their chicks are about to hatch. Staff meticulously and very slowly moved the stone block nest so as not to disturb the nesting birds.

Since we took this photo two little chicks have hatched from three eggs.
