21st May

Conditions today looked ideal for a Honey Buzzard to drift leisurely over the park. Unfortunately if one did I didn’t see it, maybe tomorrow. Birds were much as they have been.

Grey Heron family update; the juveniles have grown a great deal in the past week, though the smaller one still has a lot of catching up to do.

That is quite a hole to fill and the primaries a well developed on this bird and one of the others.

The female still seems to be on her own, collecting food amongst the long grass and holding things in her beak that I would hesitate to pick up.
