Lots of Flapping Going On

June 03, 2012 - Burlington - Lift Bridge

Sue McCreadie Reports:
Paul Reynolds reports:
I fished the pier this morning and the little ones are really active now.  One was really giving the wing flaps a hard go and their colour is really changing now.  I did witness a number of attempts by the parents chasing after food.  Mum was finally successful and took the food up to the box and I’m almost sure she just left it there for the chicks to feed themselves.
