Box End Park WeBS: 16/03/2014

A fairly quiet WeBS count at Box End Park this month. One of the pairs of Mute Swans looked like they were starting a nest on the spit and a pair of Canada Geese were keen on seeing off the others that were on site. Canada Geese have not nested here before so it will be interesting to see what happens. A Pair of Oystercatchers remain on the site so hopefully they will nest here again this year.
