With your continued support we will continue to capture the heron action as it happens!

Our visitors love to view the herons nesting at the park each Spring, clearly visible from the visitor centre's deck.

We're raising funds to look after our binoculars and telescope, as well as our HD in-nest cameras which feed images directly from the nests to our TV screens in the Visitor Centre, so you can see what's going on.

We'd like to thank Opticron for their kind donation of our binoculars and telescope which help to enhance Heron Watch for our visitors. However, we still need your help to maintain them as Heron Watch can take its toll on these items with so many visitors handling them!

The Greensand Trust also supports a team of generous volunteers who give up their time to support Heron Watch each year, sharing their expert knowledge with visitors and helping them make the most of their Heron Watch experience.

What your money will buy:

  • We can ensure that our equipment used is well maintained
  • We'd like to buy additional optical devices for visitors to use
  • We'd like to purchase additional HD cameras to place in nests 
  • We need to ensure the in-nest cameras are cleaned and maintained at least once a year
  • We support our Heron Watch volunteers
