Herons breed early in the year and their 2021 nesting efforts are already well underway at the lake. A great video clip was recently captured by one of our offshore cameras. It shows a nest with three eggs plus an adult bird doing some site maintenance.

 

A still from the video is included in this article. To view the whole 47 second clip pleasse visit our facebook page or else follow this link.

Our offshore camera project is still ongoing. Eventually, once we have overcome the numerous technology issues involved, we hope to be able to livetsream pictures of herons nesting live throught the breeding season. In the meantime we shall continue to post occasional stills and video footage both on our facebook page and on this website.
