Although no time to "stand and stare" couln't help but notice a couple of Grey Herons, a Green Sandpiper and the return of the Little Egret. It is tempting to think of it as "our" Egret but it could easily be a different one each winter. I suspect the herons are finding it very difficult to find food as we have already found two dead ones in the watercress beds this winter. With the weather predicted for the next few days almost anything could be attracted to the ice free water but if anyone has a supply of sardines or the like they could be a lifesaver.
