Once again, the lake looks quite dreary in this weather but there were a few ducks, swans (with this years cygnets), a heron and a kingfisher.

The hedging allows for a good view of the lake but it is also very quiet and peaceful for the birds.

This part of the hedging was quite bare so re-establishing it this year should allow some good growth for the future.

It is becoming an annual event to repair the hedging around Woorgreen Lake involving the clearing of bramble and removing the years growth from the hedge. The hedge is thickening up now as the work we did previously has allowed it to re-grow and there is a good deal of yellow willow growing in it as well as new yellow willow which was planted last year.

We watched a kingfisher darting across between the island and the shore, a heron was dabbling at the side of the marshy area and a flock of siskins flew over us in the trees.
