Tuesday 28th May

A fairly quiet morning, three passing Mute Swans on the fishing pond, the resident family are on the long pond and we checked, all the cygnets are still alive.

In the afternoon came across two Little Egrets on one of the Willow trees around one of the square ponds, not seen them on the trees before, see photo.

Lots of small birds are now hunting for food and there are plenty of the small green caterpillars, approximately 1 centimetre long, on the Willow trees, see photos. The leaves are only just starting to grow and these small creatures haven’t wasted any time getting stuck in.
