Seething Wells Wildlife Walk 25.11.11
Herons are a characteristic species of the site and Sim remembered seeing a total of 14 on the Filter beds in former years. They spend their time loafing in the sunshine or feeding on small mammals or amphibians that are found in the grassland. Herons are regularly seen in Hampton Court Park or 'Home' park on the other side of the river, where we were able to spot football sized globes of mistletoe in the boundary trees (now all the leaves are down).
