It appears that several people/groups have visited the ponds at
Moonstone Walk over the weekend to search for the Little Bittern, plus
other good birds, & others will undoubtedly visit the area in coming

This is a plea for enthusiastic birdos to please NOT go tramping through
the reeds, rushes, etc. in an endeavour to flush out the bitterns,
crakes & other birds.

We all need to:  (a) keep the welfare of the birds uppermost and  (b)
not upset the locals who take great pride in their small wetlands.

Viewing from the gazebo and the banks is entirely satisfactory.  It just
takes patience!

Thanks,  Celia
