A couple of changes over the weekend: sticking to tradition, these are downward adjustments in juvenile avian numbers.

Firstly, the most recently duckling cohort has lost one of its members along the way, so now stands at 3. Actually, if we include the sibling (or semi-sibling) from an earlier cohort, it still sits at 4, but either way we're one duckling down since Friday.

Secondly, we appear to have lost one of our gull chicks. I've never seen more than 2 on the roof at once today, and while it could be that there are 3 but I only see 2 at any one time (hey, they look identical to me), this seems unlikely.

Anyhow, no additions to report at this time. Neither ducks nor gulls.
