The rising water levels over the winter has made a few changes to the reserve. The tern islands have been submerged and the feeders needed to be relocated from the front of the hide to the pond dipping area. Nature found its own way this year with the terns moving nesting spots, so we were still able to experience the delightful view of young terns.
As we get more rain the water levels in some areas of the reserve may threaten the paths so a pair of wellies or boots may be sensible.
We hope over winter to get a temporary pump in place to reduce the water level to stop the water flooding the main hide.
