Bretton Lakes and Higham

Bretton Lakes
Highlights today were 2 Egyptian Geese, 1 pair Grey-lag Goose, 1 pair Gadwall, 10 Teal, 19 Tufted Duck, 4 pair Great Crested Grebe, 2 pair Little Grebe, 2 Kingfisher, 8 Nuthatch territories, 3 Great Spotted Woodpecker territories, Tawny Owl calling, 3 Swallow and Chiffchaff.
Heronry doing well again this year despite the earlier lower water levels and an increase in visitors around the lakes, with 65 occupied nests and at least one nest with young around 3 weeks old.

A pair of Raven drifting about with some display over Hugset Wood and the Wagon Road mid-afternoon.
