of moorhens rescued after dredging work damages their nest
family of tiny moorhen chicks whose nest was damaged during ongoing
dredging on the Somerset Levels have been rescued by wildlife
carers near Burnham-On-Sea.
nest of moorhen chicks was disturbed while dredging was taking
place in a rhyne near the village of Mark.
two tiny chicks and two eggs were collected and brought to Secret
World at the height of summer in July," the charity's Debbie
OKeefe told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
tiny eggs were placed in an incubator on-site and amazingly one
day later the tiny chick emerged which left us with three chicks
birds are incredibly difficult to rear due to their lifestyle,
however staff and volunteers were delighted to see them flourish
and all three have been successfully released back into the wild
this month, much to the delight of the original finders."
