Best to get the first one out of the way quickly I guess.
Yes folks, it's mid-march and it's Wandle 1 - Coots 0.
As is to be expected, they are still there and still collecting nest material. Looking at the material that is in the nest at the moment, there is a fair bit of more substantial material in it,so the base isn't so bad to start with. Bearing in mind that it has to be this big to stand any chance of survival they still have a fair way to go. But they need to get a couple of rubbish ones out of the way first.
Next week I will put this nest site in some sort of context for y'all with pictures and words and stuff.
