A pair of Goosanders by Phil (PK) Smith.
The Heronry Lakes and Heron Trail produced 3 Egyptian Geese, wigeon, tufted ducks, shovellers, pochards, a red kite, buzzard and a goldcrest plus 22 regular species. Goosanders showed well on the river and the Heronry Lakes, including a vivid pink drake. (T. Simmonds).

We have not had many otter sightings lately but you may find a few spraints if you look carefully. This one was at the River Viewpoint on a fallen tree that bridges Southoe Brook.
Otter spraint made of fish bones and scales (Jim Stevenson).
