Giving guided tours, building paths and serving teas are all jobs that use an immense amount of volunteer effort and we seem to overtax our volunteers at this time of year. All the same, we ask them to help out with wildlife surveys as well!
In a previous blog I mentioned the Breeding Bird Survey that involves two early morning counts across the whole site. In addition we have been counting nightingales. In fact, I have just returned home after this morning's 5:30 count. The news is pretty good I think. Most of the nightingales we expected to find actually bothered to sing for us. I'll tell you more when all the reports are in.
While Ray Matthews and I were being filmed for a short movie (see my next blog) a peregrine was hunting over Heronry South. That was last Monday.
It's May, don't miss it!
