I have had trouble counting nests at the heronry this years because they are hidden by tall surrounding trees. I was concerned that lack of noise made by the herons meant fewer pairs nesting. So we flew a drone over to see what was going on. The first fly past has confirmed that there are at least as many mating pairs as previous years. We didn’t cover the whole heronry, so I think there are more nests to discover. The drone will be flown over the heronry again on Wednesday to see if we can come to a definite figure.

Below is a video of the flight, straight from the drone.
