Rushmere Country Park

**Update 8/6/21 Our heron chick has fledged the nest so we have turned off the livestream camera. With your support we hope to be back in Spring 2022**

As featured on BBC Countryfile Sunday 28/3/21 - however, please note our viewing platform is currently CLOSED.

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 Heron Watch volunteers have been keeping an eye on the herons and posting their observations via our new blog:

 In addition our photographic volunteer Alan has been busy taking photographs of the nesting pairs.
