    Recording the first signs of spring

    Alfie thoroughly enjoys nature forays. He reports having seen a merganser down by the river, the flash of a kingfisher, and a heron, all perching and waiting, ready to dive.

    The 11-year-old and other members of the family look out for a heron regularly to be seen on a favourite perch, and also see other waterside birds.

    Taking part in Springwatch is something that can be built into everyday activities as Alfie, his mother Jane Harrison, and other members of the family have found.
