Heronry

Fifty years ago, the River Thames was being declared 'biologically dead' - killed by pollution that was the product of trade, industrialization and urban growth.

This makes it all the more delightfully surprising to see so many wildlife species now thriving along the River. These herons are building nests on an island close by Richmond Bridge.
