Avocets are a beautiful wading bird and I am happy to see that they are on the increase in numbers. Most of the regular sites in the North West such as Marsh Side at Southport, Leighton Moss at Silverdale have seen numbers of adult breeding birds rise. The chicks are beautiful to see as the plumage is different from the adults, having more colour.
