Every now and again in summer when the water level is low, we are visited by a Common Sandpiper.
This year we have had a couple of 'firsts'! A juvenile Night Heron came and stayed for about a month. You can just about make out his spotty body hiding in amongst the branches.
Lastly, another 'first', we've been visited about 5 times during November and December by a Little Egret, probably because the water level is low.
Our birdie count for Chateau Moorhen now stands at 58!
