visited the area this morning. The pond Kym referred to, now almost drained, and completely fenced off, is Upper Stranger Pond. On the other side of Isabella Drive is Isabella Pond, which is to be also drained and is being fenced off now.  There were 2 Great Egrets and 3 White-faced Herons at Upper Stranger Pond. Lots of Little Black and Little Pied Cormorants at both. There are major infrastructure works to be completed, which should improve conditions for birds. I had also enquired of the powers that be about the possibility of a safer crossing at the Lake end of Isabella Pond (the only option right now is going up onto Drakeford Drive and walking in the on-road cycle lane) - I've been assured that a pedestrian bridge is part of the improvement plans for that end of the Pond (ebird lists for both ponds will be visible in an hour or so).
