Story - Sending the Kids off to College.

The saga continues in the 1 nest strong heronry at Valentines Park,
8th June 2010 (GWare)
Today- as I suspected- there were only two heron chicks on the nest and no sign of the third nearby. Eviction successful! My hopes were raised when I saw a movement in the bushes on the island shore- not far from the nest. It turned out to be two herons, difficult tos ee clearly among the undergrowth. It seems to be one of the parent birds (left) tending the lonesome evicted one! (right)

and for good measure - the Grebes are still 'almost' sitting on 2 eggs on the boating lake.
