Priory Gardens Orpington, pond
Priory pond collects water draining from the surrounding chalk and is the source of the River Cray, which is a tributary of the River Darenth. There is a large upper pond with a small weir filling the lower pond, and a small side pond which acts as an overflow.

Orpington Priory Gardens, pond birds
The water level was severely reduced in 2006, and in 2007 dried to a puddle but subsequently returned to full capacity with all its usual residents Canada geese, swans, coots, moorhens, several varieties of duck and seagulls. With so many beaks around, it is not surprising that I have never seen so much as a tiddler in the waters.

CooTs = whiTe beaks, mooRhens = Red beaks.
