Following on from last weeks blog on moorland reservoirs this week we highlight one of its success stories.
The Little Ringed Plover is one of our rarest breeding birds and I have to obtain a special Permit to go anywhere near their nest. Four eggs are laid on the gravel bed of a moorland reservoir so if the water levels are high they are unable to breed. This years drought was perfect for them and they had one of their best seasons for a long time.
