It’s looking good again for the Kestrels for 2022,in and out of the nest box and copulation noted a number of times, the tie to the nest box is as strong as ever, now in its 4th year since its installation.
After nearly 2 months I have recorded 66 species so far, not too bad a start for this little urban site, areas like this are becoming very important for wildlife as East London habitat gets swallowed up by concrete and housing.
For the last 2 years Mistle Thrush, now a Red List species, has disappeared as a breeding species on the Sewage Works, one of many species now in decline.
The Sewage Works being what it is, has always attracted large numbers of Wagtails, both Pied and Grey and also good numbers of Chiffchaff, I have been catching up with good numbers of these lately.
Lots of variation in the Chiffies as you can see, also good to see Redshank again coming in from the Thames to roost on the Tanks.
