Heronry Survey

Heronry Survey

Started in 1928, this is the longest running continuous survey in Britain.  More recently interest has been added by the spread of Little Egrets.   More BTO information can be found here.




Every year we aim to survey the number of occupied nests at Heron colonies.  Little Egret counts are also required.  This year is the 84th Heronries census.

There are Heronries at Tendering Hall and at Stanstead Great Wood, which I would like surveyed.  If anyone would like to help please contact me for more details.

If you know of a Heronry in your local birding patch I would appreciate a call from you.
