Rushmere Country Park

**As featured on BBC Countryfile Sunday 28/3/21 - however, please note our viewing platform is currently CLOSED so the only way to see our herons is here via our livestream**

Our amazing Spring visitors are back in residence - as visitors are not able to view the herons from our outdoor terrace this year, we're aiming to bring Heron Watch to you digitally! Watch from now to June as they lay their eggs and raise their young.

Some of the nests are fitted with a camera which feeds live images through to our TV screen in the atrium, taking you inside the nest from the first egg to feeding chicks and the first flight!

Our fantastic livestream from the nest!

Our Heron Watch volunteers are currently keeping an eye on the herons and we'll be posting their observations via our new blog. In addition our photographic volunteer Alan is busy taking photographs of the nesting pairs.
