Heron Cam progress
Cleeve heronry is located behind us here at Cleeve Nursery. This heronry is the largest in the old county of Avon.
Normally we would be beaming live pictures from a heron’s nest into our wild bird area of our shop. However, this year the selected nest was blown out of the tree by early spring gales and the herons have not rebuilt.
Nevertheless you can follow the progress here and see how the herons have coped with the late bad weather.
You’ll see that the British Trust for Ornithology survey shows a drop in numbers but with over 30 nests occupied there are still a lot of birds!
There’s more about the BTO survey here.
