A little egret - like a small white heron - has been seen a couple of times roosting around the recreation ground. Including huddled in a tree as the snow fell one morning.

The tawny owls are hooting and making a lot of noise on still nights.

Idverde have been working in the woods near the recreation ground to open up glades in the woodland to improve the wildlife habitat.

Litter picking yielded a good collection - particularly of drinks containers and doggy bags.

The Friends of Crofton and Sparrow Woods Committee agreed to replace the original free website, as technical support for that website is being withdrawn.
