I was excited when I went to have a look at the brook yesterday. It's been dregded over the last couple of weeks and I have been hoping that once the flow was increased and some of the rubbish removed, the habitat would be greatly enhanced. I can hardly believe the improvement, firstly it looks so much more attractive, there is a nice clean flow, the environment agency, to their immense credit. have left some nice muddy areas and small pockets of rushes and grasses. But even I didn't expect to see, immediately, two Kingfishers right in front of where my hide had been previously. Then not one but 4 L ittle Egrets followed by a couple of Grey Wagtails. I spent half an hour rebuilding my hide which was very successful. Then today, I spent a couple of hours sat with my camera waiting for tha Kingfisher encounter that I can hardly wait for. It seems as though I am going to be even more patient than normal, no visit again unfortunately. But it was great when the Grey Wagtail (above), landed on each perch that i had strategically placed by the hide, one only 2 feet away!
