Sorry to those who may not have known that we feed the Badgers as if the clocks were not altered. Every time that we have to change our clocks I moan. There really is no reason for it.

Whilst the Badgers were feeding Thursday night I checked the Lake on my private view of the webcams to see if the Geese were about. When I looked at the Island I saw a rat slipping into the water to swim to the far bank. At first I thought that I had seen one of the Geese on the bank, but on a second look I saw that it was a Heron. The infra-red lamp did not quit allow for a good image on the far bank but it did look as if the Heron may have had a Fish in its beak. I didn’t hang about just in case it was not and it was going to continue fishing. By the time I had reached the Lake it was flying away. It probably heard me approaching. What surprised me was that the the Heron was on the Lake in the dark, let alone fishing. I had always believed that Herons return to their heronries at night. I not sure that I mentioned that some while ago I saw a Heron swimming on the Lake. I know I wasn’t dreaming but when I have told people they have looked at me as if I was mad.

I am a bit concerned about seeing rats on the Island as the Geese eggs will be left until all of the eggs are laid, giving the chance of a meal to the rats. I will monitor the Island to make sure that the Island is not being used by the Ducks, Moorhens or Coots to nest. If not I may decide to try to get rid of the rats.
