The rafts were repositioned further away from the bank after winter storms had moved them very close to the west bank. John Bowman brought the boat along on his trailer and Mick McQuaid did the hard work (rowing, droppimg anchors, etc).
A short while after work was completed a pair of Egyptian Geese were on one of the rafts but left a little later. The Common Terns took an interest but did not land on the rafts (it usually takes a day or so for them to take their positions on the rafts). There are very few Black-headed Gulls visiting the lake at present, so we don’t expect this species to attempt breeding at Little Marlow, as has happened at other sites in the county.
