Amazing Amount of Herons
I counted 16 heron perched in the heronry at one time earlier in the week, which is good, but surprising. When there has been a lot of activity near the heronry before the breeding season, the result has been very few eggs laid. There has been a massive amount of activity and coppicing there over the last couple of months. Chicks hatch between March and April, so it will be interesting to see what happens.
