West End:   Heronry now has 34 nests with 45 Grey Herons present at a late afternoon count. A white leucistic bird was also seen at a nest, probably the same bird that was around last year. A Little Egret came into the heronry at dusk (probably roosting). Great Crested Grebe numbers are slowly increasing with occasional display starting. Also 1 Sparrowhawk, 1 Buzzard, 1 Kingfisher, 5 Gadwall, pair of Mandarin (15 were reported earlier by others), 37 Fieldfare, also 1 Great Spotted Woodpecker and 7 Long-tailed Tit seen at feeders.
