Good news - the Swan fence has been dramatically improved, the whole of the southern section now has webbing, albeit that the northern half still just has the rope and signs. Further good news is that there has been loads of rain and there is loads more forecast, which tops up the levels, increases the distance dogs and foxes would need to travel. Also the Swans on Heronry now have fledged young so perhaps the Angel birds are now not that far away - I first saw the pair there on the 6th March, then again my earliest report of sitting on eggs was the 18th April. If that was the start then they still have a long way to go, but I did not visit every day so they may well have started a lot earlier. Let's hope so.
After yesterday's Osprey excitement today was only ever going to be very dull and so it proved. Here is a Jackdaw.
