Lego figures made of thousands of bricks were displayed at Welney this month. The frog used 75,000 bricks. Meredith dissected owl pellets and found skulls and bones of mice and shrews. Sadie photographed all the Lego creatures and recorded how many bricks each had used. We had lunch in the Nelson-Lyle Hide. The day finished with pond-dipping.

On our way up to Kings Lynn for five days' holiday, we stopped off at Welney, where avocet aggression was still at Level Red, even in international waters. The hobby was flying low and catching small mammals, which it took into the air to consume. A snipe foraged far from the madding crowd's strife.
