Maintenance work in my lodge was needed to today, which meant that I had to work from home. This gave me the chance to pop over to the park first thing and then later in the afternoon when I had to meet some volunteers with a work colleague.

As the meeting point was the Bandstand it gave me the chance to check on the recently hatched Heron chicks.
