We were able to conduct our WeBS today, first time since ‘Lockdown’ began!
It was glorious in the woods and down by the lake – so green, lots of birdsong, ducklings and wild flowers. Unfortunately our WeBS was not so accurate because the permissive path across the lake bridge has been temporarily, but reluctantly, closed by the landowner since it is too narrow to maintain safe distancing. The swans nested as usual, but this failed. It was very close to the bridge and path. We’re hoping they may try again.
