about 15-20 years back came across 2 GCN hiding in a burrow to the side of a tree stump in windlesham.
i know it seems like a long time ago, but the actual pond area has increased in size since then.
the only problem is the neighbouring housing estate has also increased in size, so that most of the pond is now full of beer cans.
visited again a few months ago and could see little sign of life there.
