Tern and Pheasant chicks and a Clouded Border

Pheasants, Phasianus colchicus
Yesterday afternoon I wandered around a small meadow near Arundel and found four new moths, two of which I managed to identify. I then spend twenty minutes in the Arundel Wetland Trust before it closed and saw a Tern chick at the Sand Martin hide, and Pheasant chicks outside the reception centre.
