Westfield Pill Sat 19th Feb

Today at 2pm just below the lower bridge at bottom of reserve, two
otters seen fishing and quite undisturbed by a small group of six
people watching. I am asuming they were a breeding pair as one looked
larger with  a broader head ( i take this to be the dog). Both otters
caught smallish fish and took on the bank to eat. will try to download
photo but it is not of good quality. Also two pair of herons apear to
be nesting on the far bank of the reserve. Otherwise the usual species
amounting to 31 in total.
