Stockbridge Reserve (members only) - families of Willow Warbler, Whitethroat and Blackcap seen. Not so lucky was the female Mallard. After loosing nine of her ducklings some time ago, it was assumed the remaining large duckling would survive. Today it was taken by Grey Heron even though it was much too large to be eaten. The Heron carried it away into the long grass.
