Winter 2012/13 saw a mega flooding event on the reserve lower meadow and last summer the meadow was a sorry sight. This summer the area looks considerably better, follow this link for a fuller report.
One of the most useful things people can do is to record the wildlife they see around them – visiting a reserve, walking the dog or even just in their garden. Such information can provide a small but helpful contribution to the bigger picture in the area. Often people go for the more obvious groups perhaps on birds or butterflies, but some go for more specailist categories including in one instance the very esoteric plant galls !
For a full report on wildlife recording please follow this link.
